Fish Festival in Thyborøn

Don’t miss out on the Fish Festival in Thyborøn!

If you are looking for a genuine West Jutlandic event, where the sea, fish, culture and entertainment combine to an unforgettable experience, you should visit the Fish Festival in Thyborøn on august 4th and 5th 2017For the last 39 years the Fish Festival has been celebrated in Thyborøn. In 2017 we are celebrating its 40th anniversary.

The Fish Festival is the time of the year where the entire family gather, sample the fish, and enjoy the atmosphere and the great music. Here are loads of children’s activities. They can catch crabs, go sledging on the ice, and play on the big bouncy castle. 

The music is, among others, delivered by the local band “Tørfisk”, Denmark’s oldest boyband, who without a doubt are Thyborøn’s most famous sons. As it is tradition, you can also join in on the fish auctions, where you can bid on freshly-caught fish, or make a bargain by the many stalls and in the local shops. Buy your ticket for the Saturday’s celebrations, including delicious samples of fish dishes and live music by Tørfisk and The Grandfætters, online at or by the entrance on the day.
