Þorrablót is a midwinter festival, named for the month of Þorri in the historical Icelandic calendar, which lasts from mid January to mid February. Þorrablót is a time to remember the customs and tasty treats of Iceland. Unique Icelandic foods like Svið (boiled sheep’s head), Hákarl (fermented shark), and Hangikjöt (smoked lamb) dress our tables. Together, we raise our glasses to celebrate: “We made it through another winter! Have faith, springtime is almost here!”
For the food adventurer in you. Do you dream of spending an evening in Iceland celebrating Þorrablót, eating traditional food, drinking Brennivin, singing and dancing?! Look no further, you can celebrate this mid-winter festival in Seattle—an evening filled with fermented shark, sheep heads, and more! This year’s theme is Glitter and Glamour.
Brought to you in partnership with the National Nordic Museum, Iceland Club of Greater Seattle, and the Seattle-Reykjavik Sister Cities.
