Join Us!

Political Festival of Europe is an open-air democracy festival, that took place for the very first time from 25 – 28 August 2022 in Mariager, Denmark. During the four days, citizens and decision-makers met in the beautiful setting of Mariager to cultivate conversations about some of the most pressing issues of Europe. The purpose of the Festival is to strengthen European democracy by reducing the distance and increasing the trust between citizens and politicians as well as decision-makers.

As we are currently in the preparations for the second edition of the Festival in 2023, we need support from citizens, business and institutions to make it the best Festival possible. In 2022, we had over 100 partners and sponsors, over 200 speakers, more than 300 events and about 350 volunteers.

In 2023, YOU can be a part of this experience too! There are different ways you can join and support Political Festival of Europe, as it will be a large-scale event with hundreds of exciting activities and welcoming thousands of Europeans.
