Due to the Corona situation in 2021 in Oslo, The American Coordinating Council of Norway (ACCN) has postponed its 35th American Independence Day celebration until Sunday, July 3rd, 2022.
Our popular "Community Guide" has been published as normal.
We hope you will continue to support ACCN. The ACCN looks forward to celebrating in Frogner Park in 2022.

Currently, all U.S. passport applicants in Norway — including adults renewing their passports through the “mail-in” form DS-82 — must arrange for in-person payment of their passport renewal fee at the U.S. Embassy in Oslo. The Department of State is pleased to announce that U.S. Embassy Oslo has been selected as a pilot location for payment of DS-82 passport renewal fees online. The pilot program is expected to begin in the next few months. The U.S. Embassy will send out another announcement when this online payment pilot system has launched, along with specific instructions to help U.S. citizens confirm their eligibility to use this online payment option. You may find more information on www.usa.no .
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. 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.
The annual US Independence Day celebration in Frogner Park offers a uniquely American experience, and would not be possible without the support of our fantastic community of advertisers, supporters, volunteers. We'd also like to extend special thanks to the City of Oslo, Frogner Park, the American Embassy, and our many, many fans. We encourage everyone to visit their links to find out more about them.
