Whitestown Viking Fest
April 20, 2018 - April 22, 2018Free
Viking Fest is a three day festival in Whitestown celebrating Viking Culture. There will be fighting reenactments, archery, a Viking Village, food, and music!
Noble Order Brewing and J&J Winery are teaming up with the town of Whitestown to make the Viking Village come to life. Attendees will enjoy archery demonstrations, wolves, fire juggling, axe throwing, authentic blacksmith work, glass blowing, vendors, live music by Blackthorn’s Bards and much more.
There will also be a kids’ corner where young warriors will make their own sword and shield, launch water balloons with a catapult, and try their hand at an ancient Viking game that was played by Vikings after they conquered a village. Vikings used their enemies’ skulls and femurs – the event will use game pieces made of wood.
The event will also feature three armored combat groups to entertain and thrill onlookers with high-action fighting demonstrations. Authentic food and drink will be available for purchase. Rusted Silo will roast a pig on-site. There will also be turkey legs, smoked meats and Scotch eggs, as well as a selection of Viking Ale and Mead for the adults and cider for children.
Hours for this free event are:
- Friday: 4-10 p.m.
- Saturday: 11am-10pm
- Sunday 10am-2pm
A professional archer will shoot a flaming arrow into a target to officially kick-off the event Friday night. The event will conclude with a Viking breakfast feast on Sunday.
Viking Fest will be held at the site of a future park, located within the AllPoints at Anson Industrial area at 4671 Anson Blvd., Whitestown.
Please note that since there will be live wolves at the festival, attendees may not bring pets to the event.
