A Magical World

Free for everyone all day!

September 1 marks 20 years since the first art event took place here in the park – the first seed of what would become Marabouparken konsthall. We want to celebrate that with you!

A Magical World 2004 was an outdoor art and party event in the park. Now it’s going to be a party again! Free and open to everyone all day, with a variety of events and activities. Guided tours in the park and current exhibition, dance, performance, Monster Club Deluxe and more! Of course, our summer exhibition The Flow of Everything is also open all day.

You are welcome to stay after 4pm when restaurant Savannah serves food directly from the grill and DJ Henning plays records.

  • make your own Monster pin
  • buy lunch and coffee (lunch ends at 2 p.m.)
  • go on a quiz walk, for both adults and children in the park (prices are promised to all children, as well as adults with all rights)
  • visit the art gallery’s library where we show an exposé with everything that has happened over the years.

It will be magical!
