About the festival
Stoppested Verden is the largest international children’s festival in Norway. The festivals’ goal is to establish an arena where we through concerts, workshops, activities, performances and exhibitions focus on the knowledge and understanding of our multicultural diversity. Through our program we seek to surprise, motivate and trigger an interest for and understanding of the values within the worlds’ many diverse cultures.
