For the 31st consecutive year the American Coordinating Council of Norway (“ACCN”) celebrated America’s Independence Day in Frognerparken, Oslo.

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.

The proceeds from each Independence Day event are donated to deserving organizations. Five grants were awarded this 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.
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.
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. The ACCN’s main objective is an interest in furthering Norwegian-American relations in Norway, and also in strengthening the bonds between Norway and the United States. The cornerstone of the ACCN’s network is its monthly meetings with delegates from member organizations, during which news about upcoming events of mutual interest is exchanged.
