Welcoming Banquet


It is a tradition to gather for the Welcoming Banquet during one of the first days of The World Firefigthers Games.

Here you will be met by the warmth of Danish hospitality and enjoy delicious cuisine that showcases the flavors of Dnemark while meeting with fellow firefighters from your own nation and others around the world. So it is not just a banquet; it is an opportunity to connect with like-minded, share stories, and celebrate the bond that unites all firefighters around the world.

Welcoming Banquet is a ticketed event.

Participation costs US dollars 100 per person and includes a buffet dinner inspired by Danish summer with local produce, free bar for the duration of the event (beer/wine/water/soft drinks), and of course entertainment throughout the evening.

Purchase your ticket when registering for the event.

The welcoming banquet will be held at Aalborg Congress & Culture Centre on Sunday September 8th from 18:00 - 21:00.
