The Christmas village in Hafnarfjörður

The Christmas village is an event that sums up the Christmas culture in Hafnarfjörður and a visit to the Christmas village, museums, shops, cafés and restaurants is an important and essential part of many people's Christmas preparations. Every year on Advent, a large and diverse group of artists performs in the Christmas village and elsewhere in Hafnarfjörður with all kinds of things. We are now advertising for creative and fun individuals and groups who have ideas for pop-up events, exhibitions and projects that are conducive to promoting culture and enlivening life in Hafnarfjörður during Advent.
