Reykjavík Culture Night

22. August 2020

Reykjavík Culture Night will be held for the 25th time on the 22th of August 2020. The event, which is both created and enjoyed by city residents, takes place all across Reykjavík with celebrations in city streets and squares, in museums, businesses and even in residential gardens! The event’s slogan “come on in!” is a reference to those good old fashioned customs of hospitality.

Culture Night is now a permanent fixture in the annual calendar of events in Reykjavík and 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! For more information please visit the Reykjavík Culture Night website.
