About

Reykjavik Culture Night will be held for the twenty first time on August 19th. 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 Reykjavik Culture Night is to deliver a diverse and rich offering of cultural events from 1-11pm, ending with a magnificent firework show by the harbour. All events are free of charge for everyone to enjoy. Reykjavik Culture Night is organised and produced by the events team at Visit Reykjavik, in collaboration with other city departments, organisations, artists, societies and countless others.

Nb. The Reykjavik Culture Night timetable is published subject to change. Any necessary changes to the programme will be made.
