Golden Days - Copenhagen's annual culture festival
Golden Days Festival was held for the first time in 1994, and was formed as a collaboration between several cultural institutions in Copenhagen.
Each year, these partners work together to create a festival programme that invite locals and visitors to experience everything from Christian the 4’s Copenhagen to the industrial revolution and the interwar period. With the festival, Golden Days want to make young people interested in history, persuade men to go to museums and the elder to try new thing.
The vision is to share knowledge, history and culture in a what that people actually find interesting, and want to be a part of. You get to engage, learn a thing or two and maybe even gain new perspectives on the society we live in.
The forgotten "b-sides" of Denmark's history
In 2018, the theme of the Golden Days Festival is "The black stain", where the events we sometimes forget or wish to forget are brought to the surface. See the program on the festival's website.
