Largs Viking Festival

Official Largs Viking Festival Page

The 2016 Festival will run from 27 August to 4 September


On behalf of the Largs Viking Festival Committee I am pleased to extend a warm welcome to our Festival website. I hope that the information provided will meet your requirements and persuade you that a trip to Largs will be very worthwhile and enjoyable.

We have an extended Viking Village this year which will open every day from 11am to 5pm. Please note the Village will close from 1.30 to 2.30 p.m. on 27 August to enable the re-enactors to participate in the opening parade and at 4.30pm on Saturday 3rd September for the Party at the Pencil.

Come and see how the Vikings lived in an authentic 13th Century village - talk to them about their way of life; learn about how they made their clothes, weapons, jewellery and food. Ask the Vikings about their religion, beliefs, homes, crafts, ships, their homeland and why they left it.  This year the re-enactment group Swords of Dalriada will be in the Viking Village with Viking traders from Germany, Sweden and Ireland. The entry fee of £5 for Adults and £2 for Children/Concessions (over 60s and students) gives admission throughout the day of purchase. Under 5s free.

A Scottish Food and Craft Fayre will also open every day from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Come and enjoy a shopping experience with a difference.

Owl Magic will be with us every day and on both weekends there will be on stage entertainment, street performers on the Promenade and an aerobatic or parachute display. A fun fair will also be present on the Promenade throughout the Festival.

While we do all we can to ensure the Programme is met as advertised, there are occasions outwith our control when events have to be cancelled or changed and we reserve the right to do this without prior notice, particularly where there is a military involvement as these are always subject to operational requirements. Please keep checking this website under "News" where any changes or cancellations will be advised as soon as they are made known to us.
