  • The Norwegian Raspberry Festival - annually in August; August 18 - 20, 2017
    Vik, Norway. The festival first took place in 2015 and is a non-commercial festival, which means any profit is spent on arranging the following year's festival. The festival aims to encourage commitment to the raspberry industry in the municipality of Vik and to promote Vik as the largest raspberry municipality in Norway. As there are several foreign seasonal workers that work within the berry trade in Vik during the summer, this gets integrated into the programme for the festival, as an example the written programmes are also available in Polish. There is also a focus on a cultural exchange with these seasonal workers and other cultures in Vik during the festival.
