Snapsting for Children
Last week of June 'Snapsting' is held in Viborg. A huge party for the whole city. In 2014, children got their very own 'Snapsting for kids', developed by Kulturprinsen, with lots of activities and offers for daycare centres, schools and families. In 2016, more than 8,000 children and adults took part in the many different offers, ranging from creative workshops to concerts and a joint parade.
Creative workshops at Borgvold
Borgvold Park is buzzing all week with play, life and learning. Here, children from 0 to 14 years of age have the opportunity to immerse themselves and physically express themselves through the many workshops and events. Day care centres and schools can register free of charge for a wide range of creative workshops in areas such as music, storytelling, animation, visual arts, team building and much more. The activities are suitable for all audiences, from the youngest nursery and day-care children to kindergarten, primary and middle schools. There are also many activities that do not require prior registration.

Snap Parade and concert with Sigurd Barrett
Saturday is the grand finale to a week of activities for children and families. In 2016, for the first time, the Kulturskolens 'Snap Parade' made its way through the city with music, performance, poetry, jokes and art installations. The final event was a children's concert with entertainer Sigurd Barrett and the Aarhus Jazz Orchestra in Domkirkepladsen.
What is Snapsting?
A few hundred years ago, Viborg was Denmark's annual centre for trade, knowledge exchange, cultural interaction and political debate. It was a money market where all trade in land and property in Jutland was concluded; a news exchange where politics was debated, knowledge was disseminated and rumours spread; and a place full of culture, entertainment and folk life. A tradition that Viborg has recreated on modern terms, where people meet, talk and create community, celebrate and discuss politics and culture. It is a place where you not only experience culture as a spectator, but also become a co-creator of it through your active participation.
Who is behind
Snapsting for Children is organised in collaboration with Kulturprinsen, Kulturskolen and Viborg Libraries and receives financial support from Viborg Municipality.
