The Tall Ships Races 2015

The biggest event this year in Kristiansand will be when the Tall Ships Races is coming town July 25 – 28.

Once again we will experience more than 80 of the world’s most spectacular sailing ship sailing from 20 different countries. Again, the port of Kristiansand will be filled with large white sailing ships, a sea of ​​masts and cadets in different uniforms from all over the world, a continuous continuous and varied cultural program and festivity.


During The Tall Ships Races in 2015 we again will transform the Port of Kristiansand into Southern Norway’s largest marketplace and we are offering you the all-time-high cultural assembly of southern Norway. Here you will find stages, restaurants, children’s activities, culture exhibitions, art projects, sports competitions, parades and a lot of stalls.

We are very proud and pleased that HRH Crown Princess Mette Marit again is patron of The Tall Ships Races Kristiansand in 2015.

The Tall Ships Races 2015 will be the biggest event ever in Southern Norway.

Don’t miss the dates July 25 – 28!
