The Icelanders of Victoria is a chapter club of the Icelandic National League of North America (INLNA). Our focus is on Icelandic heritage, culture and traditions. Membership is open to anyone that shares these interests, whether or not if Icelandic is your ancestry. Our club hosts annual events such as a Þorrablót banquet, Iceland Independence Day picnic and a Christmas social. The club enjoys regular screenings of Icelandic movies and documentaries, visiting singers, artists and lecturers. We also host “coffee socials” for visiting Icelandic tour groups and dignitaries to round out our cultural calendar. In addition through University of Victoria, the Richard and Margaret Beck Trust Lecture Series sponsors lecturers on Icelandic history, literature, folklore and art.
