The Eurovision Song Contest has been a staple of European culture since 1956 – and Europe in a Day LOVES it!! Wherever I day trip, you can be sure I’ll be providing Eurovision facts and trivia for that destination!

Europe in a Day’s Birthday Eurovision

As part of Europe in a Day’s 5th birthday celebrations in 2020, a Birthday Eurovision was held to celebrate all the nations visited as day trips. As well as national juries for the then 38 day trip countries and territories, a televote decided by Europe in a Day’s readers helped determine the winner!

Following the success of the 2020 Birthday Eurovision, it was decided to make it an annual event, taking place on August 31st every year!
