The Festival Square

During five days, from 25th to 29th of august 2021, we make Israels Plads in Downtown Copenhagen the heart and center of the festival. Alongside our great partners we turn up the festivities and present a programme full of dining experiences, workshops, talks, music and much more.

In the Festival Square we celebrate Copenhagen's strong and sustainable food scene. Will also celebrate two iconic institutions, with the 10 year anniversary of Torvehallerne and the 100th birthday of the Copenhagen Hotdog Carts (pølsevognen).

The Festival Square will highlight UN's Sustainable Development Goals. We have, along with our partners of the industry, chosen to highlight goals 12 and 13 as a framework for our debates and workshops. Every day we'll present a bigger event, in which UN's Goals will be carefully debated and discussed by our partners.


A different theme will be higlighted every day. Each theme will be reflected by the events on our stage and the food being served at the square
