For a small cruisy coastal town, there are certainly a lot of things going on in Denmark! So much that we decided to create a weekly “What’s on’ blog, so you can find it all in one spot!
The Denmark Arts office has been a hive of activity this year, providing locals and visitors with a huge and varied events calendar. Please note, even though some of these Denmark Arts events are free, tickets must be purchased so please follow the links for more information 🙂 Creative Summer @ the Arts House
