Oslo Bear Weekend is an annual event held during the Oslo Gay Pride festivities, in the capital of Stockholm and brings together bears from across Scandinavia and beyond for a weekend of fun as the city.
Oslo Bear Week Events
The event is coordinated by “Norway Bars”. The associacion produces events across the country and the bear pride meeting is one of the highlights of the year.
- The associacion has their own bear stage in Pride Park, picnic the first weekend, their own section in the parade the following weekend and a big party Saturday evening.
- Bears like to gather on the Friday of the final weekend at Trappa Pub, an intimate bar where it is easy to mingle and meet your fellow bears, friends and admirers.

Gay Map of Oslo
The vast majority of the city’s nightlife dually caters to both hetero and homosexuals, in allotted weekly club nights or in a laid-back free-for-all which is really refreshing. There’s a gay scene too, though; one accessible to every taste. Alongside British-named venues like The London and Brighton, there are bear-specific clubs, Europe’s biggest ladies’ night, and the bi-weekly chafing of Scandinavian leather man parties.
