Oslo Pride has a long tradition to build on. The festival was first held in 1974 , and has been held in different forms and venues every year since 1982.
Pride Park, our largest event of the Pride, is since 2003 located at the Town Hall Square (Rådhusplassen) in the middle of Oslo city.
In 2005 Oslo Pride hosted EuroPride for the first time. The EuroPride Pararade 2005 made history with a record attendance of 15.000 to 20.000 participants (police estimate) and 55 parade groups and floats.
A few years later Oslo Pride made an important movement. From 2008 onwards the Pride Park has been an open and free event for all. Pride Park has grown significantly since 2008, in 2012 and 2013 there were a record amount of stand holders (34) and visitors (40.000).
Pride Park visitors can enjoy a very relaxed and free atmosphere. Furthermore, all shows, concerts and parties at Pride Park are free of charge.
In 2011 Oslo Pride had the grand opening of the Pride House, a venue dedicated to polits and debates. At Pride House different workshops, debates, lectures and other cultural events take place for the whole duration of the Pride. All events are free.
