2016 St Patricks Day Parade in Oslo Norway

 

 

2016 Oslo St Patricks Day Festival

Saturday March 12th, 2016

The first formal St Patrick’s Day Parade in Norway was held in Oslo in 2000, organised by Irish expatriates living in Norway. The aim is to provide a focus for celebrating Ireland’s national day! The Parade is one of the activities organised by the Norwegian Irish Society. The Society is  non-political and non-denominational,  voluntary and non-profit making and aims to promote Irish culture in Norway and help also to promote good relations between Norway and Ireland

St Patrick’s Day is Ireland’s National Day and is celebrated every year on 17th March. It is celebrated throughout the world since Ireland has a very long history of outward migration and indeed almost every major city in the world has its own celebration.
