One thousand years and counting, Icelandic culture is very much alive. Icelanders enjoy a sophisticated European lifestyle based on age-old traditions. They make their own food from fresh ingredients, design their own clothes, write their own books, make their own music and perform their own plays. Now, Torontonians can once again experience the Icelandic lifestyle during A Taste of Iceland, the country's captivating cultural festival, from Wednesday, March 17 to Saturday, March 20.

Hosted by Iceland Naturally and in collaboration with Toronto's Drake Hotel, this four-day event will offer Canadians a chance to learn more about this beautiful country and its people, with a variety of events including free live performances, film screenings, Icelandic food offerings and art.

A Taste of Iceland, a multi-day cultural program, will include a variety of public events, such as live musical performances, Icelandic culinary promotions and a film festival. A Taste of Iceland is presented by Iceland Naturally, in cooperation with Icelandair, Icelandic USA, Inc., 66° North, The Blue Lagoon, Icelandic Glacial, and The Drake Hotel.
