The annual celebration

Aarhus University was founded on 11 September 1928, and holds a celebration every year to commemorate the event. In addition to the university's staff, we also invite our partners, whose support for Aarhus University is invaluable.

The 2020 annual celebration will take place on 11 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 space limitations, only invited guests with tickets will be admitted.

The celebration will continue in the evening with an event at Concert Hall Aarhus. At 20:00 there will be a concert for staff and external partners in Store Sal, conducted by Peter Vuust and Per Christian Frost. Afterwards, all guests are welcome to have a glass of wine in the foyer.
