With over 200 FREE events throughout the city, Oslo Culture Night is a great opportunity to sample the best Oslo has to offer, from concerts and art exhibitions to film showings and guided tours – and so much more.


This year #Oslokulturnatt celebrates 15 years (Hurray!), and falls on Friday 13 September. If the date sounds scary the programme is anything but, filled as it is with fun and exciting things to do on the day.

Want to join a tango or Halling folk dance class, or a crash course in sign language? Try SUP down the Akerselva River, or a trip in a wooden boat under Oslo main train station? Explore Oslo Harbour anno 1798 in VR, or Old Oslo on a guided medieval walk? Discover up-and-coming Norwegian artists at the popular Autumn Art exhibition (Høstutstillingen), or join a guided art tour in Bjørvika? Visit the world’s largest small bottle museum, or Norway’s only Bible museum? The choice is yours.


New this year
This year you will also be able to speed date the dead at the Viking Museum, go behind the scenes at the National Theatre, try your hand at glassblowing, enjoy a sauna and a dip in the Oslofjord, explore the sounds of the city, and so much more… And don’t miss the new street musicians festival in Dronningsgata and Karl Johan (Oslo’s main street) to get you in the party mood and discover local talents.

Always popular
Many old favourites are also returning. There will again this year be large scale video art with live music on the opera roof, mini-cruises on the Oslofjord, the opportunity to climb the stairs in the City Hall tower, baking at Losæter Urban Farm, music in Emanuel Vigeland stunning mausoleum – the list goes on.

A little preview of my new routine showcased at #oslokulturnatt. It's a work in progress, but that's what makes drag and performance art so exciting. Can't wait to see what other directions this piece will take 💙
