Some days in the summer, the charming southern city of Arendal changes to an international fete – where we can see, taste, smell and in all other ways feel that the whole world is here.
Arendal City Nights have been arranged since 2010, with a focus on city planning, new ways of using the possibilities of the old city core which as in most other cities is loosing against the malls outside the city.
Combined with the Winter Festival Arendal City arranges the ”Cultural days for Children”, with a lot of activities for kids and youth. Theatre, concerts, building and flying of dragon kites.
