Eldur í Húnaþingi is an exhilarating celebration of arts, entertainment, and community spirit. A community oriented culture festival, the 5 day gathering offers dozens of performances, activities, exhibitions, and screenings representative of the best in music, dance, comedy, film, circus, and family entertainment in Iceland and abroad.
Early festival seasons emphasised community artists, neighbourhood competitions and activities but have since become more popular and diverse in nature, encompassing a breadth of performance genres, activities, education opportunities, and environmental engagement. What began with a vision for a summer cultural event that would bring community together, now flourishes as the largest culture festival in the region, connecting audiences with world-class artists, expanding horizons, and showcasing Húnaþing vestra as an arts and culture destination in North -west Iceland.
This year's theme is the universe and our future.
