Place of the week – Akureyri town festival

The theme of the Akureyri Town Festival 2016 is PLAY – INSPECT – CREATE.

The Birthday of Akureyri is celebrated annually on the last weekend of August. The opening ceremony of the festival always takes place on Friday evening in the Botanical Garden. Other highlights are: the Ghost Hunt Evening in the old town, Science Center and events along the Artist Alley.

On Saturday night there is a Candle lighting at the church steps. Guests are encouraged to light a candle and put it on one of the many church steps as a symbol of peace for everyone, everywhere.

One of the biggest event is a sing along with Ingó, a well known Icelandic singer on the Saturday evening.
