This is our biggest event of the year, typically attracting over 700 visitors who are interested in Viking lore. Through the cooperation of Viking re-enactment groups from Calgary and Edmonton, visitors can tour the Viking encampment, showing living accommodations, cooking methods and crafts. You will also see Viking warriors demonstrate the use of swords, shields, axes and archery. A favourite for everyone is the battle with the Vikings, where children are given “swords” to fight it out with the mighty, fearsome Vikings. This is family-oriented event, with face-painting, Viking costume dress-ups, and telling of Hans Christian Andersen stories. Vendors set up tables around the site to sell their crafts and articles with a Scandinavian flavour. Visitors can enjoy lunch at the Saga Café [reservation required], or have a Danish hot dog, Danish desserts, old time soft drinks or other confections outside. Buy Tickets Here
