Secrets of Grimstad - Events

Welcome to Secrets of Grimstad!

Secrets of Grimstad is where you will get to network with other international and norwegian workers and their family/friends in the region. 7 times a year, between August and June, Grimstad municipality, Grimstad Chamber of Commerce, and the University of Agder organise a social gathering where everyone is welcome.


Our Secrets of Grimstad events usually take place on a Tuesday, start at 17.00 and end around 20.00. The events bring a mix of interesting presentations to familiarise yourself with your new region and, most importantly, socialise with people and hopefully make new friends!


Locations vary but are usually quite central so it is easy for everyone to meet up.

We also invite you to join the Grimstad International Group on Facebook
