June in Odense: 5 events you should know about

June is here and so are the monthly event suggestions. I left out all the well known, such as Tinderbox (you are most likely planning to go there already, aren’t you?) and gathered some smaller local events, as well as new or first timers in Odense city.

Here are 5 events you should check out in Odense this June.

Second-hand market at Dronningensgade

June 17th

Free of charge

Love buying second hand goodies? Here is a great way to explore, in my opinion, one of the coziest neighbourhoods in Odense, when a second-hand market is taking place at Dronningensgade. All the locals had a chance to put up a stand, so let’s see what’s on sale.

More information here.



June 15-16th

A mix of paid and free events

Riddimfestival brings sound system culture to Odense for a weekend. Concerts of Reggae, Hiphop, Dancehall, Drum'n'bass, Dub, Jungle & Afrobeats will take place at Teater Momentum, as well as Storms Pakhus.

Have a peek behind the curtains of ODEON, when Odeology rounds up a series of techno events with "Revenge of the Techno" on the 16th of June. The stage of ODEON turns into a night club, with local and international dj’s.

Sankt Hans celebration at Engen

Free of charge

Never have I ever seen such a big bonfire as at Engen during Sankt Hans celebration! The green meadow turns into a spot for a picnic and meet up with friends, to celebrate the midsummer. The bonfire will be lit at 9 pm, but there is a family friendly programme and some concerts on the stage from 4pm.

I would love to hear what events you are planning to attend in June.
