Manassas Viking Festival

Scandinavian music, dancing, food, vendors and special “guests”, fun for the whole family!
The Manassas Viking Festival is a cultural and educational event hosting several Viking reenactment groups who will set up camp on the Manassas Museum lawn where they will demonstrate scenes from daily life during the Viking era, including iron work, tool making, wood carving, working with wool, archery skills and period fighting.
The Raptor Conservancy of Virginia will be bringing some of their raptors, including the gyrfalcon. We hope to have horses and Icelandic sheep on the lawn as well!
Music by the Crossjacks and entertainment including The Nordic Dancers of Washington D.C., “Sporið” Icelandic folk dancers, and Phoenix Irish Dancers! There will be vendors by the Harris Pavilion and local restaurants will offer Nordic Fare and other refreshments. We encourage you to come in your Viking best!
