Bangsbo Flower Festival held in Bangsbo Botanical Garden by Bangsbo Manor. The last 25 years the garden around Bangsbo has borne the name Bangsbo Botanical Gardens. The garden is cared for and developed with inspiration from University of Copenhagen Botanical Garden and Botanical Garden in Aarhus.
Through time, many Danish poets and writers found peace and inspiration in the garden - and at the Bangsbo Flower Festival it's your turn to be inspired by the many exhibitors.
You will be able to view and purchase brand new and rare plants that will be put on sale for the first time. Seeds from the old plant varieties can be purchased at the festival where you will find everything from herbs and summer flowers for rare trees and exotic plants.
Or drop by the many exhibitors with garden-related products, selling many different things that make life in the garden a bit more fun.
Throughout the weekend, several local associations also offer everything from sales of hobby items for rabbit and poultry exhibits for sale of various goodies.
