With diverse music, rich traditional dishes, and a history of unique artists, Iceland’s culture truly is like no other in the world. To celebrate the spirit of Icelandic culture, the capital city of Reykjavik will come alive on August 18th for the annual Reykjavik Culture Night! Honoring the spirit of Icelandic hospitality, this year’s slogan is “Come on in!” inviting guests from Iceland and all over the world to gather in the city’s museums, restaurants, gardens and more for an unforgettable night.
Reykjavik Culture Night marks the start of the city’s cultural calendar, when museums, theaters and other cultural destinations launch their annual program of events. The event begins at 1:00pm, and the celebrations last well into the night. Just some of the programs on this year’s schedule include an Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon and Fun Run, costume photo shoots, emerging art exhibitions, an open dance floor in the streets of Reykjavik, and so much more. Lastly, don’t miss the grand finale of the night with a fantastic fireworks show over Reykjavik’s beautiful harbor!
