Activities during the festival
On the festival grounds there are over 30 fun activities to try. At Upzone Adventure Park, you can, for example, try out the Nattduellen from the Swedish TV show Mästarnas Mästare, test your sense of balance and try walking on a tightrope or challenge the family in giant sack jumping. On the Climbing wall, the Volym Climbing gym offers an exciting challenge in the form of an eight-metre high tower where both adults and children can climb together and see who gets the highest. Read more about the activities in the Anniversary Calendar.
Food and beverages
Five different food areas will be available during the festival. These are Lindholmen Street Food Market, GG400, Stora Blå restaurant and café, Soldäcket and Älva. In addition, there will be several food trucks. Read more about the festival’s food selection here.
Anniversary shop and information tent
In the Anniversary shop, you can buy fine products produced by the Anniversary actors for the celebration of Gothenburg’s 400 years. Here you will find books, clothes, postcards, delicacies and much more – all with a connection to the city.
In the same place, you can also ask questions about the festival, as well as take part in tourist information about Gothenburg.
Inauguration of Jubileumsparken and the new harbour pool
2–5 June, the Jubileumsparken and the new harbor pool are opened and inaugurated. In addition to bathing, there will be a series of activities connected to water, play and movement. Here you can take part in the entire program.
Full program at Prototyping Gothenburg
Prototyping Gothenburg starts the summer celebration with a packed program 1–5 June. On the festival grounds you will find Prototyping Gothenburg in the Omställninglabbet and at the marine allotment Flytevi. Read more about Prototyp Gothenburg and its program here.
More about Frihamnen
The festival will take place in Frihamnen, on Hisingen – only a 15 minute walk from the central station. This is an exciting area, where urban development is in full bloom. Historically, Frihamnen has been used as a harbour for banana import and ferry traffic, and is now on its way of becoming part of Gothenburg’s midpoint. In the future, Frihamnen will have apartments and offices for 17 000 people.
Hisingsbron, Jubileumsparken and Ringön
Several larger anniversary projects can be found in Frihamnen. The new bridge Hisingsbron is one of them. Read more about the bridge here. The park Jubileumsparken is also put in place due to the 400th anniversary. Take the opportunity to go for a swim in the harbour pools or play in the unique playground. Read more about Jubileumsparken here. Nearby, you’ll find Ringön – an industrial area which has bloomed with creative businesses. Read more about that anniversary project here.
Food and beverages for all tastes
At Gothenburg’s Anniversary Festival you’ll find everything from oyster bars to langos carts. From African soul food to cinnamon buns. From beer brewed in the neighbourhood of Majorna, to ice cream made in Partille. Something for all ages and tastes, quite simply. And almost everything with a clear connection to Gothenburg, such as local ingredients and menus that flirt with the city’s culture.
The festival’s food areas and food trucks
The festival has five food areas – all with different focuses and menus – as well as a number of food trucks that are on display in slightly different places in the area. All services have the same opening hours as the festival.
LINDHOLMEN STREET FOOD MARKET
The popular food market at Lindholmen moves into the area during the festival days and fills 1800 square meters with food, bars, DJs, tattoo artists, board games for children and above all: a good atmosphere!
Street food from Asian, Mexican and American cuisine is served here, as well as crepes and desserts for those with a sweet tooth. In addition, there is an eatery that serves dishes that are popular with children.
Curious to try beer from one of Gothenburg’s microbreweries? Then this is where you should go – and browse among the offerings at Spike Brewery, Poppels Bryggeri, Majornas Bryggeri, Göteborgs Nya Bryggeri, Ocean, Odd Island, Billdale and Brewgineers.
Location: at the main entrance to the festival and in front of the Outdoor Stage.
THE FISH AND SHELLFISH RESTAURANT GG400
Gothenburg’s largest seafood restaurant can be found at the Anniversary Festival! With a transparent roof, so you can see the sky, and right by the water, you can enjoy food from the sea, organic wine, schnapps and at the same time be entertained by activities that take place on the chef stage.
More specifically, there are oyster bars, an SOS bar (short for herring, cheese and schnapps) where you can buy cold dishes such as a herring platter and shrimp sandwich, as well as a piano bar. The larger kitchen serves hot food, such as moules frites, fish and chips, and a seafood stew inspired by the spice voyages of the East Indiaman Götheborg.
The Nordics’ first urban winery, Wine Mechanics, which is otherwise based in the neighbourhood of Gamlestan, will be on site so you can enjoy local wine.
Location: by the quay, between the ferry stop and the marine allotment.
STORA BLÅ RESTAURANT AND CAFÉ
This dining area is perfect for those who want to enjoy the entertainment from the Tent Stage while eating or drinking something.
The inspiration for the menu is taken from the city’s well-known hook. Here you will find hamburgers from 7’s street kitchen, focaccia-like pizza from Walk in the park, homemade sausage from Johan i hallen, shrimp sandwich and more.
Craving coffee? There is a coffee cart here, with outdoor seating from which you can see the Outdoor Stage.
Location: by the Tent Stage.
An all-vegetarian dining area, with a lawn, deckchairs and a built-up platform where you can sit and look out over the water and town.
Here you will find everything from food trucks and an aperol spritz bar, to a Way Out West greenhouse where you can book a table. Restaurant Gaffelkonst is also on site and serves brioche sandwiches with different fillings.
Inside Kajskjul 105 you will find two bars at the back of the premises.
Location: outside Kajskjul 105, by the water.
In the Älva food area is the Mixed Grill tent – a concept where you get a plate when you pay, and can then choose different side dishes from the prepared buffet and three proteins from the grill (of course there are vegetarian options).
There are also three food trucks, a pergola housing Pepsi and a Red Bull bar. No alcohol is served in this area.
Location: by the water, in front of the Tent Stage.

Disposable materials will be replaced as much as possible with reusable materials, and there will be water taps on site, so don’t forget your water bottle!
