City festival

Gothenburg Culture Festival

On September 1–4, enjoy Gothenburg Culture Festival, a city festival with a broad programme of events to suit all tastes and ages. The events are free and open to everyone!

The festival brings together many partners to offer both large-scale and more personal experiences. From popular musicians, contemporary circus, children’s theatre and outdoor cinema to new food experiences and the chance to try out activities for yourself – there is something for all tastes and ages.

Visit the central festival site at Kungstorget or discover one of our new sites, located in places that define Gothenburg – such as Slottsskogen, Ringön and Slakthuset in Gamlestaden.
Or why not book a Culture Gift, where you can have your very own cultural experience delivered to your home or to a friend.

Gothenburg Culture Festival wishes to promote and inspire positive change in society and has made sustainability part of its DNA. Everyone is welcome here and we take joint responsibility for our impact on the planet.
