Welcome to the ONS Festival!

During the ONS Festival, Stavanger Harbour will be transformed into a small urban village with pavilions offering food and entertainment. Entrance is free and everyone’s welcome- come join us!

The ONS Festival makes ONS an event unlike any other in this industry. Our aim is to offer our guests an arena for social networking in the evenings. The festival area is located on the quayside alongside the city’s intimate harbour. This has proven to be the perfect meeting place for mixing business with pleasure.

The Festival Pavilions

The pavilions consist of international guest cities, Norwegian regional pavilions and companies all offering their unique food, drink and entertainment from their respective parts of the world.

In 2018, the following pavilions were represented:

  • Northern Norway Region
  • Esbjerg, Denmark
  • Houston, TX
  • Florø Region
