Youth Sports Carnival

The 17th annual Youth Sports Carnival UMF will be held from the 1st to the 4th of August 2014. This is the third time that this event will be hosted in Skagafjrur.

These Youth Sports carnivals have proved themselves to be a wonderful family and sporting festival where thousands of children and youth along with their families take part in a diverse programme of events. The Youth sports carnival is a drug and alcohol free family festival where children and youth from the ages of 11 to 18 participate in a number of sporting events. Concurrently diverse activities are on offer to entertain the whole family.

The Youth sports carnivals garner a lot of attention and the participants have been exemplary in their behaviour whether on or off the field. These carnivals are by far one of the largest sporting events in the country and have become a yearly event every August bank holiday weekend.

Many volunteers take part in the carnival, this years organiser is UMSS (the Youth Association of Skagafjrur) with the support of the Municipality of Skagafjrur and the Youth Association of Iceland.
