DesignMarch is Iceland’s annual design festival. From 25–29 March 2020 it will transform the most northerly capital in the world into one big venue for design for the 12th straight year.

March is the perfect time to experience the thrilling Icelandic creative scene. For five days, one hundred or so exhibitions, workshops and other events spread across Reykjavík, from the fishing harbour to the main street and the lava fields surrounding the city. Whether it be fashion design, graphics or architecture, Iceland's capital city lives and breathes design.

When you Build Your Own Holiday with Icelandair, you'll enjoy the perfect city break to explore Reykjavík’s creative scene, with dozens of design events bringing the city to life. Visit openings and galleries, relax in some of the capitals quirky cafes, shop local design, soak in the geothermal pools, dine in style and meet the local designers over cocktails. During DesignMarch, Reykjavík sizzles with creative energy. From fashion to furniture, architecture to the environment, food to product design, DesignMarch showcases the best of the local design scene alongside exciting international names. The festival opens with DesignTalks, a day of lectures by internationally acclaimed designers and leading local design thinkers.
