Throughout the year, and in particular the summer, Denmark’s festival scene springs into action with something to suit all tastes and interests.
In the selfproclaimed shellfish capital of Denmark, the three-day long shellfish festival in Nykøbing Mors
brings more than 16,000 visitors looking to eat and discover more about Danish shellfish.
Nykøbing Mors is surrounded by Limfjorden, a beautiful
fjord in which shellfish and seafood thrive, and it is exactly this that is celebrated at Skaldyrsfestivalen.
“It was a local group of people who initially started the festival back in 2005. Celebrating shellfish
We knew what we had around us and how delicious the food on our doorstep was, and we wanted to make it
Celebrating shellfish available to more people and showcase the fantastic shellfish,” says Lars Tang, chairman of the festival.
Over the past 14 years, the popularity of the festival has continued to grow and people now travel from far and wide to taste some of the delicacies.
The festival takes place from 30 May to 1 June this year.
There is no admission fee for the festival: however, some of the events do require a ticket, and it is always a good idea to book in advance, as the events are often sold out on the day.
Skaldyrsfestivalen takes place in Nykøbing Mors harbour. Stalls with fresh produce,
prepared food and gifts to take home line the side of the harbour with the backdrop of the sea and the fishing boats that have helped to bring the shellfish in.
Among the local delicacies are oysters,
which are sought-after by the best restaurants in London and rarely come fresher than those found at the festival.
his October, coinciding with the centenary of the birth of MååsFjetterström’s weaving business, a major exhibition will open in the Hall of State at the Royal Palace,
named after MååsFjetterström’s own saying: Look at the rugs – find me. Showcasing cultural heritage and craft this way is nothing new;
it has been a regular occurrence since 1921, when the Hall of State was dressed in an impressive collection of tapestries.
This is the first time, however, that Måås-Fjetterström’s work will be on display at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.
