Taste of Iceland in Seattle, October 14-17

Taste of Iceland in Seattle, October 14-17

The famous festival celebrating Iceland’s culture returns to Seattle!

Celebrate four days of Icelandic culture

Taste of Iceland will be held in Seattle on October 14 -17! The four-day event offers festival-goers a 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, 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 a 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 of the events are free and follow the good ol' first come, first serve policy.

We sincerely hope to see you there. Check out the schedule below and keep coming back for updates!
