Velkomin. Welcome.

Join us August long weekend for the 125th Annual Islendingadagurinn on August 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 2014. Visit the heart of New Iceland, Gimli, Manitoba - just 1 hour North of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and celebrate family, friends and Icelandic heritage and culture.  

Islendingadagurinn, as far as we have been able to determine, is the second oldest continuous ethnic festival in North America. Velkomin (welcome), and enjoy the food, events, activities and of course, the Vikings! 

The 2014 Icelandic Festival of Manitoba Fjallkona is Hedy Bjornson. The Fjallkona "Lady of the Mountain", is the female incarnation (national personification) of Iceland.  

Check out the Islendingadagurinn Song
