Reykjavik Culture NightWhen
18.08.2012 - 19.08.2012
Culture & Design
With the midnight sun still keeping things light for almost 24 hours, Reykjavíkites fill the streets to celebrate Iceland's vibrant culture.
Both young and old participate in the many and varied cultural events in and around the city. Each year throughout the long, bright, sunlit night, the capital comes alive and buzzes with excitement well into the early hours. There are outdoor concerts, performances, fireworks and fairs, while bars, restaurants, shops and galleries stay open late to cater for the large crowds that flock to the city for these special celebrations.
Since the late 1990s the Reykjavík Marathon has also been run on the same day, bringing sport and culture together in one big celebration.
