Fjallkona Walkway and Settlement Marker Donation
The Icelandic Festival of Manitoba has been selecting a woman to be the Fjallkona since 1924. The Fjallkona represents Mother Iceland and personifies New Iceland’s ongoing relationship with Iceland.
A group amazing Fjallkonur has come together to raise funds for a Settlement Marker that will share the story of the Fjallkona. The marker will be located near the east entrance to Viking Park. To celebrate our Fjallkonur, past, present and future, the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba will be inscribing their names on beautiful timber board plaques in front of the marker – creating the Fjallkona Walkway. Please donate today to help celebrate the inspirational Fjallkonur of the past and all the ones to come in the future.
