Iceland might be an isolated island in the middle of the north Atlantic ocean, however in recent decades it has become noticeably more and more multicultural thanks to immigrants from all over the world, choosing this island as their new home.
This Saturday May 27th, Reykjavík will celebrate its multiculturalism and for the 9th time Multicultural Day will be held in Reykjavík.
Many cultural events will be held all over the city, there will be a colorful parade and a multicultural market will be held at Harpan.
The city mayor will officially launch the celebration by Hallgrímskirkjan at 13:00 with a Parade that will march from Hallgrímskirkjan to Harpan music hall. The idea is to bring together representatives from various groups to the parade. You will see flags, national costumes, music, dancing and lot’s of color.
