The Icelandic Festival of Manitoba "Islendingadagurinn" as far as we have been able to determine, is the second oldest continuous ethnic festival in North America.


Islendingadagurinn is home to a plethora of fun events such as an authentic viking village, midway shows, craft and food vendors, fireworks, live music and much more! See vikings battle it out, eat great food and watch the Islendingadunk tournament where people hit each other with "thumpers" in the Gimli Harbour!

Join us for a long weekend of celebrating Icelandic culture in the Heart of New Iceland!
