There is a wood-carver, an upholsterer and a basket worker all showing the secrets of their time-honored arts. Young visitors are welcome to try their hand at diverse arts – for example basketry or tinning under supervision of the experts (11 a.m. and 1 p.m.)

There are activities for younger children like working with beads and wools.

Nesting boxes, apple crates and other interesting things are also on the agenda – come and swing a hammer!

Vorbasse Market, one of Denmark’s oldest traditions

No summer is complete without a visit to ‘Denmark’s greatest family tradition’. A quarter of a million guests visit the market every summer. Its history goes back almost 300 years. This year the market opens on Thursday 19th July at 12 o’clock and continues until the great firework display on Saturday 21st July at 11 p.m.
There are always 400 – 500 horses for sale, 200 dealers selling small animals (from white mice to red cockerels) and around 650 stalls of market goods – new, old, antique, odd. There are also six or seven travelling fairs with various attractions, as well as lots of free entertainment on the market stages. Vorbasse market is also the focus for many colorful ‘knights of the Danish roads’: tramps and travelling entertainers.
