Viking Festivals & Markets
Established Viking festivals & events in 2019 across the UK & Europe.
The Jelling Dragon has always been an avid supporter of all Viking festivals & events and we used to attend many of them as reenactors & traders. As our business has evolved we primarily trade online now and rarely get to trade at many of these famous events. Nevertheless we still love to tell you about all these amazing trade shows, reenactment events, famous Viking battles and much more and if you look carefully you may see us there amongst the crowds!
