Sports and culture
There are many activities both for children and adults within a number of sports, cultural, religious and humanitarian organizations.
The most popular sports-activities for kids and young adults in Songdalen are football and handball. But also motorsports like trial, cross and go-kart are hugely popular. We can boast about five time Norwegian trial champion Mardon Moi being active in Songdalen.
For those interested in recreational activities like hiking and nature trails Songdalen is the perfect place to be. We have rich forests full of natural trails and interesting floras and faunas. Just beware where you walk during moose-hunting season.
For those who like to sing there are a multitude of choirs for all ages, as well as youth groups, religious groups and several humanitarian activities. Local chapters of world wide organizations such as the Red Cross and Lions are extremely active and people in Songdalen generally do a lot of voluntary work for the local community.
The municipal organizes some large happenings throughout the calendar year. In the spring we provide the local stage for UKM, a youth talent display, we throw a party for all citizens on Norway's national day May 17., and during autumn we hold a large multicultural party as well as a "Culture-fest" where a person or organization gets a prize for their contributions to culture in our county.
