Taste of Iceland In Seattle 2018

The famous festival celebrating Iceland’s unique culture returns to Seattle October 11-14, 2018!

Iceland Naturally invites Seattle to experience Icelandic culture with the return of Taste of Iceland from October 11-14! Back for its 11th year (and bigger than ever), the four-day festival highlights the very best of Iceland’s culture, showcasing the nation’s cuisine, cocktails, music, design, film and more with a variety of fun events.

This year, Taste of Iceland teamed up with Icelandair to bring Seattleites a chance to win round-trip tickets to one of the many exciting European destinations via Icelandair in the #SEAicelandair Giveaway! From October 12-14, 2018, Icelandair representatives will take to the streets of Seattle to provide locals with the daily chance to win a pair of round-trip tickets in an exciting scavenger hunt. Winners will be able to travel to any of Icelandair’s European destinations with an option to stopover in Iceland! Plus, everyone could be a winner, with further giveaways including $100 gift certificates for travel on Icelandair, T-shirts, and other cool prizes. Click here for terms and conditions.
