Happy 10th Birthday OSgrid

This weekend the OSgrid is celebrating its 10th birthday and today I went along to check it out for myself. There are five specific birthday regions to explore this year: OSG10B1OSG10B2OSG10B3OSG10B4 and OSG10B5 full of amazing exhibits from the OSgrid community.

For the OSG10B main stage and live music events visit the Event Plaza.

Here are the OSG10B regions showing the exhibits from the sky. The builds look incredible from walking around and the overall layout is nicely done I think.

It’s Party Time! 🙂

OSgrid 10th birthday is happening this weekend


OSgrid will be celebrating it’s 10th birthday this weekend (#OSG10B) with a great selection of live performances, live djs playing great tunes and birthday themed events to mark this very special occasion.

It’s going to be the biggest party ever on the OSgrid and it’s expected the visitor attendance will be pretty high during the weekend. Finally there will be many exhibits worth seeing created by OSgrid residents who have spent hours creating their own content for this year’s 10th birthday.

Today OSgrid comes top of the table for the most regions and most active users on OpenSim which is pretty impressive after ten years.

Join OSgrid this weekend and enjoy the 10th birthday celebrations! 🙂
