About OCX

Oslo Comics Expo is a comics convention held on the weekend of May 27-28 2011 in Oslo, the capital of Norway, a small country in a part of the world called Europe.

Oslo Comics Expo (OCX) was held for the first time in 2007, so this year we celebrate our five-year anniversary!

Location

Our main venue is outdoor, in a big tent placed in a cozy park called Schous plass in the urban village of Grünerløkka in downtown Oslo. This is also where the marketplace is located, in another big tent. Here is also Serieteket, the comics library in Oslo, where there are exhibitions, a second stage and a small bar with refreshments.

The big OCX afterparty on Saturday night is in a place nearby, see this map for directions.
