There are several exciting events taking place in Denmark during the months of September and October. Visitors to the country, particularly those staying in the capital city of Copenhagen can add these entertaining activities to their itineraries: Copenhagen Blues Festival 2012.
Happening on September 26th to the 30th, 17 venues around Copenhagen will be the stages for local and international blues performances. This is the 12th year that the event is able to gather world class blues musicians together with homegrown talents who can be seen and heard in pubs, coffeeshops and even in shopping centers and churches. Big names include David Lindley, Dave Herrero, Eddie Campbell, James Harman and a lot more.
Erimitage Run 2012. Lace up those running shoes for the highly-anticipated Eremitage Run on October 9th. A 13.3 km-race around the Eremitage Plains (also known as “The Deer Park), the race attracts over 20,000 runners all over the world and an audience of about 60-70,000 spectators. What makes the race unique is the scenic route that the runners take through the park which is home to over 2000 deer and other wildlife. The Night of Culture in Copenhagen.
Another major annual event taking place in the city, this unique event aims to show a different face of Copenhagen at night. This year, the Culture Night happens on October 12th and over 200 museums, churches, galleries, theatres and other cultural venues will be participating in this one-night-only festival. Those who want to take part will need to get a Culture Kit (about DKK 90) to gain access to all the activities on that night.
