From June 25-27, 2020, we’ll be broadcasting live on Facebook, showcasing some of the incredible icebergs that have been dotting our coastline this season, as well as local craftspeople, storytellers, chefs, musicians, and more! We’ll bring some of the best of the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula to you.
While the 2020 Iceberg Festival is taking on a virtual format, we look forward to seeing you all at the 2021 festival. The 2021 Iceberg Festival will feature many exciting events for all to enjoy, spread across the tip of the Viking Trail.
The 2019 festival marked the first time local restaurants competed for bragging rights in The Quidi Vidi Iceberg Fish & Chips Challenge which was a yummy success! Other successful events from last year were the The Iceberg Explorer Challenge and The Rock Art Hunt, both encouraging you to get outside and get active. Back by popular demand last year were musicians Fergus O’Byrne and Jim Payne, magician Michael Conway, and comedian John Sheehan. The second edition of the Polar Bear Dip surpassed all expectations. We plan to continue with events like these plus new ones in 2021!
The Iceberg Festival celebrates the coming of spring in the north and the annual arrival of icebergs among breathtaking landscapes and seascapes, fantastic fare and good company!
Dip your toes into the North Atlantic! Have a dance! Eat seafood fresh from the sea!
For future dates beyond 2020, The Iceberg Festival starts on the first Friday of June every year and runs 10 days to the following Sunday; June 4th – 13th, 2021; June 3rd – 12th, 2022 & beyond!
