Iceland’s beautiful national costume will be in the spotlight during the National Day celebrations coming up soon at the Árbær Open Air Museum on 17th June. Guests are more than welcome to come dressed in their own national costumes for the occasion. Fjallkona – the Lady of the Mountain, will be formally decorated with traditional ‘Skautbúning’ regalia at 14:00. At 13:00 members of the Classic Car Club of Iceland arrive for a special exhibition of vintage cars. Up in the loft at the original Árbær farmhouse building tasty Icelandic ‘lummur’ pancakes will be cooked as the yarn is spun in the traditional way. Traditional dancing shows with Vikivaki and a local school brass band will play at 15:00. Members of the Icelandic Handcraft Association will show beautiful handwork in various houses in the museum area. Light refreshments will be available as usual at Dillon’s Café! Admission is free for children, the disabled and those wearing their national costume. Photo: Roman Gerasymenko.
