The Viking Market 2021

Viking Week at Foteviken 22 - 28 june

The Viking Market of 2021 will be held, but it is still to early to decide on the programme and format due to the Corona virus epidemic. We will receive registrations for participants well in advance during the season. 

Welcome to Foteviken Viking Market 2021
- 26 years of markets!

Yet again it is time for the Viking Market at Foteviken, which in 2020 sadly was significantly scaled down with just local participants due to the Corona virus epidemic. 

This year we will be open and all Vikings are welcome during the Market. It is uncertain at this point how many visitors we will receive, but hopefully we will be able to have a good time, get your products sold and enjoy the historic environment in these trying times. We will strictly follow the recommendations of the authorities in place at the time, and as such we will have to return at a later date with more specific information in regards to breakfast, feast, scheduled activities and competitions. 

The Viking week, June 28 to July 4

During the Viking week we live the Viking life, do our crafts, socialize and sell our products to visitors.
