Various locations Across Seattle
Seattle and Reykjavík aren’t just close pals, they’re sister cities. In fact, Seattle is home to more Icelandic people than anywhere else in the United States. To celebrate the culture of the magical Nordic land, Seattle invites Icelandic chefs, musicians, writers, artists, and filmmakers to town every year for the four-day Taste of Iceland festival. This year’s event includes an Icelandic prix-fixe dinner at Cuoco (Oct 11-14), talks on Icelandic design and architecture and energy and innovation at the Nordic Museum (Thurs Oct 11), a discussion with award-winning Icelandic author Andri Snær Magnason at Elliott Bay Book Company (Fri Oct 12), a cocktail class at the Hot Stove Society (Sat Oct 13), a celebration of the 100th year of Icelandic independence at KEXP (Sat Oct 13), the Icelandic music showcase Reykjavík Calling at KEXP (Sat Oct 13), and the Shortfish short film festival at the Nordic Museum (Sun Oct 14).
