Posted on

Manitoba's Year of Music celebration continues with another fantastic summer of festival this long weekend. This year marks the 125th anniversary for Islendingadagurinn or the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba, which celebrates Icelandic culture and heritage... and throws one heck of a party in Gimli. 

Running August 1-4, the event -- the second oldest continuous ethnic festival in North America -- offers food, crafts, games, competitions, sport, and even a Viking village. It also offers music fans three nights and two days of live music. This year's lineup is a diverse bunch, from alt-country to indie pop to jazz-tinged Mexican prog rock, featuring a big local contingent.
