Albeit beeing a small town, Molde has the good fortune to host two very different festivals. The first, and largest, is Molde International Jazz Festival (MIJF
english: MIJF English page).
The festival was founded in 1961 and has been an annual event ever since. Week 29 every year (approx. 3. week of july) this little town filles up with people, music and celebration. We may love it or hate it but we can't deny that this is what puts Molde on the map.
The second festival is Bjørnsonfestivalen, the Norwegian festival of international literature. Established in 1992 in connection to Molde's 250-year anniversary Bjørnsonfestivalen is today Norways oldest festival of literature.
The festival gets its name from Norways first Nobelprize winner, Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson (1832-1910). He lived in and around Molde for 12 years in his youth. Bjørnson created the modern, Nordic historical drama and he also wrote the lyrics for the Norwegian national anthem.
