The famous festival celebrating Iceland’s culture returns to Seattle!
The four-day event offers festival-goers a perfect taste of Icelandic culture, cuisine, music, film, wellness, and much more. The event will mostly take place at the beautiful National Nordic Museum, dedicated to the history of Seattle’s Nordic immigrants and celebrates the Nordic community and culture. In this fitting backdrop, this year’s Taste of Iceland will have something for everyone.
Some of Seattle’s best local food trucks will set up outside the Nordic Museum — ready to put their spin on Icelandic dishes and ingredients. Artist Laufey Lin, who has been gaining attention for her beautiful voice and contemporary classical music, will perform at this year’s Reykjavík Calling. The Icelandic documentary “The Third Pole” will screen, and Jósa Goodlife will take you on an elemental meditation journey. Finally, Icelandair will offer the chance to win a trip to Iceland with their ‘Wheel of prizes’! There’s a chance to win a whole bunch of other fantastic prizes as well.
All events are free and follow the first come, first serve policy
