September in Odense: 7 events you should know about

It does not matter if you are new to the city or already call Odense your home - welcome back to the monthly event suggestions. There are lots of things going on in Odense, and while some of them are easy to find, many events are simply are hiding under Danish descriptions, or even somewhere outside of social media.

This time I have selected 7 events, which are non-Danish speaker friendly: starting with a trash walk, something for stand up and impro fans, finishing up with Denmark's fairytale marathon. Keep reading (or should I say - keep scrolling?)!


Trash Walk - World Cleanup Day 2018

September 15th

Free of charge

Put on some gloves, grab a bag and let's go! Flash Your Trash is bringing attention to littering behaviour in Odense and Denmark, and is inviting people to join different trash walks around the city, where you can help pick up the trash and maybe even make some new friends. Click here to read my interview with a founder of Flash Your Trash - Tuyen Phan.

Comedy Open Mic

September 18th

Silent reading party

September 20th

Free of charge, sign up required

This may be the most anti-social event ever (because you need to stay quite), but it can also be the greatest chance to finish that book you have been keeping on a shelf for months or get done with some study/work reading materials, while surrounded by other reading strangers at Odense Library.

H.C. Andersen marathon

September 30th

There is an entry fee for runners

If you are new to Odense - hello, there will be many more events called in the name of H.C Andersen. Here is one of them. The organisers expect a total of 6,000 participants for this year’s race. If you would like to try your chances, you can register to run a marathon, half marahon or "the last 10k". Not a runner type? You can also cheer for the runners along the route together with actors dressed as fairytale characters.
