Annual Celebration

Aarhus University was founded on 11 September 1928, and holds a celebration every year to commemorate the event. We invite not only the university staff but also our partners, whose support for Aarhus University is invaluable.

The 2019 annual celebration will take place on 13 September

The celebration of the university’s anniversary will begin in the afternoon with speeches, a celebration address, music, the conferral of honorary doctorates and presentations of awards and scholarships. The annual celebration will take place in the Main Hall on Nordre Ringgade. Due to lack of space, the event is for invited guests with a ticket of admission only.

The celebration continues in the evening with an event at Concert Hall Aarhus. At 8 pm there is a concert for staff and external partners in the Concert Hall’s Store Sal, led by Peter Vuust and Per Christian Frost. Afterwards, all guests are invited to snacks and wine in the foyer.
