Midsummer Night or as the Danes say, Sankt Hans in Frederiksberg Garden
(23rd June 2018)
UPDATE: Due to the incineration ban, there will be no fire this year. The rest of the program, however, proceeds as planned.
On Saturday, the 23rd of June 2018, Frederiksberg Garden stays true to its tradition of organising the most beautiful Midsummer night party of the capital and everyone is welcome to join the celebration.
The large grass field in front of Frederiksberg Castle is a perfect location for a picnic before the Sankt Hans’s fire is lit late evening and Midsommervisen can be heard. But before all that, the evening offers a lot of entertainment for everyone in true Nordic style.
On the playground, the compere, Kalle B guides the children through a number of musical songs, including Mek Peks Oh Abe show and happy child hip-hop with HipSomHap. Some concerts and entertainment are waiting for you on the stage in front of the castle by Copenhagen Phil, Pernille Rosendahl and much more.
The Mayor, Jørgen Glenthøj (C) is looking forward to seeing a lot of people in the garden:
“Sankt Hans evening is a lovely tradition, and there is something special about celebrating it in Frederiksberg Garden, where the Midsummer event unfolds in the most beautiful way. I highly recommend participating and experiencing the very special mood when the fire is lit and Midsommervisen is sang” he says.
Also chairman of the Culture and Leisure Committee of Frederiksberg Municipality, Simon Aggesen (C) is looking forward to:
“Sankt Hans in Frederiksberg Garden is a really cosy event, not only for families. You can just take some food with you, eat under the sky, there is entertainment for the children on the playground already from kl. 16. Thus, even if the kids don’t make it awake until the fires comes on, you can still have a nice evening together in the park” he says.
Everyone is welcome to Skt. Hans in Frederiksberg Garden, but there is unfortunately no access to the event for bicycles, thus they must be parked outside.
Sankt Hans in Frederiksberg Garden is a collaboration between the Norden Association and Frederiksberg Municipality.
