Taste of Iceland in Seattle

Kicking off on October 11, Iceland Naturally welcomes Seattle to experience Icelandic culture with the return of the renowned Taste of Iceland! Back for its 12th year, the festival immerses Seattle in the best of Iceland’s culture, showcasing the nation’s cuisine, music, literature, film and more with a variety of events throughout the city. 

Throughout Taste of Iceland, festival goers will even have a chance to win a trip to Iceland! To celebrate 10 years of Icelandair servicing Seattleites, Taste of Iceland teamed up with the airline to bring Washingtonians a chance to win a fabulous 10-day trip to Iceland among other exciting, Icelandic prizes with the #SEAcloseup Challenge! From October 10-19, 2019, Icelandair representatives will be hosting the #SEAcloseup Challenge to test your knowledge of Seattle and Icelandair.
