The Icelandic Hekla Club in Minnesota will be partnering with the St. Paul Landmark Center in which Iceland be the featured country in the St. Paul Landmark series, Urban Expedition, on February 25, 2018, from 1 - 3 p.m at the Landmark Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. This is the 14th year of this series, but the first (and likely only time) Iceland will be highlighted. The purpose is to provide authentic cultural experiences that include music, dance, crafts and traditions from different destination countries. Bulgaria, Japan and Bolivia are the other highlighted countries for 2018.
From the Landmark staff, we have learned that this event is aimed at children and families as a way to visit Iceland without leaving St. Paul and is free and open to the public, It is our opportunity to showcase Iceland in a variety of participatory and interactive ways. Depending upon the weather, the expectations are for some 300 - 650 attendees.
In addition to live Icelandic animals, crafts, food, cultural displays, etc. there will be two hours worth of performance programming. We ask you to mark your calendars to attend this event if you are in the Twin Cities in late February (maybe you'll stay on after the Super Bowl), and if you have a way in which you'd like to participate as a vendor, performer or as a means of informing about Iceland, all are welcome to join the fun, at no charge.
Please feel free to contact me for further information.
