Fools, jugglers, clowns and other madmen and -women take control over the streets of Porsgrunn. They all have one thing in common: The Street is their Stage.

Hence the festival’s motto: One city, one stage!

It is never boring in Porsgrunn during PIT. We promise entertainment both for adults and children. But watch out! You never know what may happen in the Street of Fools.


We cooperate with Porsgrunn Min By to host a European Food Market and have also invited a number of different vendors to create good food and atmosphere. The city’s restaurants are also ready with their various menus.

Green Oasis is a project aimed at making the local environment greener through an annual transformation of areas into green oases. This year there will be Green Oasis on Keims Gård with open bakery Wednesday-Saturday during PIT. Organized by Feste landskap, Ikke bare brød and Osebakken Andelsgård.

“Plant-exchange-day” Saturday, 17. June between 11-14. For more information see @gronnoase on Facebook.

At the Town Hall Square Saturday, we organize retro market; one boisterous circus square with sales, food and artists!
