There is an ancient Icelandic custom that ensures abundance in all things and that is ritual sharing of great food and friendship during Thorri. For over thirty years in Toronto the gathering has grown and continues to expand in greater and greater appreciation and enthusiasm for Icelandicness and the power of community.

AND… to fill our guests with memoried Icelandic, Icelandic Canadian and traditional Thorrablot Food and Fun Experiences!
