French aperitif & market 
Torvehallerne,Cph K; June 14 & 15;

One big cheese and wine party as Torvehallerne goes French for a couple of days adopts the unique atmosphere of a French market.

The Color Run 
Valbyparken; June 15; 315kr per runner;

Dress in your whitest of white gear and head off on the 5km fun run.

After every 1,000m you’ll be showered with coloured powder and end up looking like a psychedelic poster from the 60s. Be healthy and happy says its motto. (PS)
