Welcome to The Jelling Dragon - The Original Viking Crafts Store.

Viking Festivals 2023 Worldwide – Viking Festivals in the UK, Europe, USA, Canada & beyond!

Viking Festivals 2023

Whether your a Viking festival veteran, or new to the Viking scene, there is something for everyone at a Viking festival. Spend all day browsing Viking stalls, go see a Viking combat demonstration, learn Viking crafts, Viking age cooking, take part in a Viking beard competition, or just go and have a few drinks in a Viking mead hall!

Have a look below at the many different Viking festivals and Viking markets around the world, drop by for a taste of Viking culture and stock up on Viking wares!

More festivals will be added throughout the year as and when I get more info, so if you want your festival adding then please email me the details to brian@thevikingdragon.com and include your official page and dates for us to use.
