The sun (almost) never sets on Oslo Pride. Party 24 hours!
Oslo Gay Pride (known locally as Skeive Dager) is one of the highlights of the gay calendar in this beautiful city in Norway. The main part of the pride is held in a tented village on Oslo’s spectacular harbour, with food and beer tents as well as a small market selling just about everything you could imagine.
Pride Park Town Square opens for four days, with shows, music, art and culture. More than 40,000 visitors attend this event each year.
The parade will make its way through the streets of Oslo, held on the last Saturday in Oslo Pride Week The parade starts at 1pm on Platous Street and works its way to the city hall, with lots of colourfully decorated trucks, buses and cars.
The entire gay community in Oslo will host more than 150 parties and other events during the pride festival. The London Pub has been Oslo’s most famous gay bar since the ’70s. Spread over 2 floors and very popular with locals and tourist alike, and makes a good starting point to get to know Oslo and its people,

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.
