Festivaler i Nordkapp NO EN TY

I Nordkapp kommune liker vi festivaler.

Nordkappfestivalen er vår lokale kulturfestival. Den arrangeres hvert år i midten av juni måned. I løpet av en innholdsrik uke inviteres det på en kulturell meny bestående av musikk, revy, teater, diverse utstillinger og flotte friluftslivsopplevelser. Festivalen er en markering av at en ny sommer står for døra i Nordkapp.

Den første Nordkappfestivalen ble arrangert i 1956 og var folkefesten som markerte åpningen av den lenge etterlengtede Nordkappveien.

Nordkapp Filmfestival er siden 2004 arrangert i Honningsvåg i midten av september. Da er det duket for filmopplevelser på toppen av Europa. Dette er en liten, intim og inkluderende filmfestival.
