Avaldsnes Viking Festival

Avaldsnes, Norway

Viking history brought to life at Avaldsnes

Every year, around the second weekend in June, there is a four-day Viking Festival at the Viking Farm, Avaldsnes. Vikings from around the world gather and set up their tents between the reconstructed buildings.

The event carries on the tradition from the Norse sagas when the royal estate at Avaldsnes was a meeting place for people from many countries, and a place of cultural exchange.

Meet craftsmen, traders, and sailors; watch weaponry demonstrations; listen to storytellers and musicians and make new friends!

The purpose of the event is to make the history of the Viking Age come alive in a child-and family-friendly manner.

In 2023 the Viking Festival Avaldsnes will take place 8th -11th of June.
