© 2019 av Frostrøyk/Byen vår Gjøvik for Norsk Akevittfestival

October 1st-3rd

GJØVIK  2020

10 year anniversary

The Norwegian Aquavit Festival is based on the Norwegian Aquavit that we´ve got historical ownership to here in Gjøvik. With great drinks, music, food, art and culture, we will celebrate three days to end!
Of course, the festival is also suitable for those who should not like aquavit. We've got an exciting and varied festival program that is centred around Norwegian food and drink. Whether you like good aquavit in the glass, good music or know how to appreciate a lively festival, the Norwegian Aquavit Festival is the right place to be this fall weekend!
