Come celebrate America’s Independence Day!


The American Coordinating Council of Norway (ACCN) celebrates the 31st American Independence Day celebration in Frognerparken, Oslo on Sunday, July 3rd, 2016. We are busy putting together this year’s entertainment line-up, but it’s not so early that we can’t give you a teaser. This year we’re proud to announce that Moving Day! and Glory Days will be joining us on stage to “rock the park.” In addition to fabulous prizes and fantastic BBQ food, Street Car events with their awesome collection of cars will be present as well.

A winning formula.

The proceeds of each Independence Day event are donated to deserving organizations. Four grants were awarded last year at ID2015. Oslo Barnemuseum, the American Lutheran Congregation and Northern Lights Foundation were the lucky recipients.

Shout-out to our Community

This event would not be possible without the support of our fantastic community of advertisers, supporters, volunteers. We’d also like to give a special thanks to the City of Oslo, Frognerparken, the American Embassy and our many, many fans. We encourage everyone to visit their links to find out more about them.
