This is the day on which Orø opens its doors and residents come together in a concerted effort to show visitors all that their island has to offer. The making of honey, a guided motorcycle tour, meeting with an artist, a garage sale – the whole island buzzes with life on Orø Day.
Every year in Spring our community’s Isefjord School holds its very popular flea market. All the donated items are collected from residents and businesses on the island and are sold to raise money for extra activities and things the school would otherwise not have resources for.
