Recognised as the largest event of its kind in Europe, the annual JORVIK Viking Festival is a city-wide celebration of York’s rich Norse heritage.

About Festival

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.

The full programme for #JVF19 is now available to book. Keep an eye on our Social Media channels, the website and sign up to our eNews for all the latest news and events.
