The Crow Wing Viking Festival
The family-friendly Viking Festival features Viking-age crafts, costumes, weapons, mock battles, music, and games. The event strives to be authentic to the Viking age with the slogan, “Real Vikings. No Horns.” The popular conception of horned helmets originated with artists and opera costume designer during the 19th century. Festival-goers will be able to see and try on replicas of actual Viking helmets.

Food will be available on-site. We also anticipate offering coupons for off-site restaurants.
