Something special takes place nearly the whole year through in the Ruhr Metropolis. Such happenings can vary from celebrations to mark an opening or anniversary, to markets or a one off event such as a concert, festival, performance or theatre.

The various communities are quick to pick up on such events, creating exciting gatherings large and small.
