Þorrablót 2016 will be a cultural and culinary feast. The main focus will be interacting with the food and understanding its history, and celebrating the rich heritage of our Icelandic ancestors with the most scrumptious and innovative food creations yet from chef Arden Jackson. With “All in Fun” in mind, the evening’s program will feature spirited tributes to Icelandic art, poetry, storytelling, singing, and musical performances in our dazzling new venue. We have drawn our inspiration from the best moments of past years and have reimagined Þorrablót 2016 in our new upscale setting. This year we move away from the banquet style dinner and will do away with lineups. Limited seating will be available. People will mingle freely and socialize uninhibited and experience a program like no other.
