Culture Night this Saturday!

Reykjavík’s 24th annual Culture Night will be held on Saturday 24th of August. Events and performances, large and small, will fill the streets and squares of the town centre, alleys, gardens, galleries, shops, cultural institutes and private homes.

The event is both created and enjoyed by city residents and takes place all across central Reykjavik, with celebrations in the streets and squares, in museums, businesses and residential gardens! The event’s slogan ‘come on in!’ is a reference to good old-fashioned customs of Icelandic hospitality. Reykjavik Culture Night marks the start of the city’s cultural year, when museums and theatres and other cultural institutions launch their annual programme of events. 

The main objective of Culture Night is to encourage participants to deliver a diverse and rich offering of cultural events with a taste of something for everyone and a few surprises too!

With about 100.000 guests Culture Night is the biggest and most popular festival in Iceland. The programme offers a cross-section of all things culture, with a host of events ranging from musical performances to exhibitions of art and architecture, all delivered by the city’s budding talent.

All festival events are offered free of charge, meaning everyone can take part and make the most of it together with their nearest and dearest.  Reykjavik Culture Night is organised and produced by the events team at Reykjavík Cultural Office, in collaboration with other city departments, organisations, artists, societies and countless others.

We promise an exciting, entertaining, inspiring and energizing festival for all who attend!
