Let’s paint a rainbow

The opening act of Reykjavik Pride!

Painting a rainbow is a Reykjavik Pride tradition which marks the formal start of the six day rainbow festival. This year’s location will be announced here on 7 August.

The last four years three beautiful places in downtown Reykjavik have been dressed up in the rainbow. The locations so far are:

  • 2015: Skólavörðustígur street
  • 2016: The stairs leading to Reykjavik College (Menntaskólinn í Reykjavík)
  • 2017: The entrace of Reykjavik City Hall
  • 2018: Skólavörðustígur street

Some paintbrushes will be available for interested volunteers but it is recommended that you bring your own. The event is organised in cooperation with Reykjavík City’s “Meanwhile projects”.
