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 a tournament of people hitting each other with "thumpers" off the Gimli Harbour!

Join us for a long weekend of celebrating Icelandic culture, great food and fun times!
