Come celebrate America’s Independence Day!

The American Coordinating Council of Norway (ACCN) celebrated 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. Last year we were proud to announce that Moving Day! and Glory Days would 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 were present as well.  Click here for our Facebook page. | Click here for our Twitter page.

A winning formula.

The proceeds from each Independence Day event are donated to deserving organizations. Five grants were awarded last year at ID2016. Stiftelsen Oslo Barnemuseum, the American Lutheran Congregation, the Northern Lights Foundation, the American Women’s Club of Oslo, and Sons of Norway Christiania Lodge 8-004 were the lucky recipients.

What is the ACCN?

The American Coordinating Council of Norway (ACCN) is a non-profit council of Norwegian-American organizations founded in 1985. Acting as an umbrella organization, the ACCN offers its member organizations the ability to extend their horizons by providing an information network to American and Norwegian-American groups in Norway.
