About Festival

Wednesday 20th-Wednesday 27th February 2019

Visit York in February 2019 for a week-long celebration of all things Viking!

This year, we remember legendary Vikings whose role in the sagas is often forgotten – the women who schemed, fought and led their people through turbulent times. Across the city you will discover an exciting programme of events, plus living history encampments, talks, tours and of course, dramatic combat performances.  There is something for everyone at JORVIK Viking Festival.
