Cultural events in the area

Are you fond of concerts? Then please consider visiting the Løkken Concert in July. Each year popular bands enter the stage and you can have an unforgettable day at Løkken Stadium.

The second weekend of July – usually the day after the concert – the Vesterhavs March takes place covering the distance from Løkken to Grønhøj to Blokhus. The March is arranged by the Sct. Georg Parties. This is a great tradition with a good purpose.

In 2011, Børglum Monastery was the basis for the TV Christmas show called ‘Ludvig and Santa/Ludvig og Julemanden’ on the Danish national channel TV2. In the Monastery, you can see pieces of the scenery for Santa’s Christmas craftsman shop. It is definitely worth a visit for families with children.
Each year, the monastery hosts various musical - and organ concerts. The beautiful Christmas decorations and peak views into the monastery’s private rooms are quite popular, especially on the Christmas weekends.
