Get your business involved with the Festival Fringe


Every year, JORVIK Viking Festival offers York businesses the chance to join in the action by ofJORVIK Fest logo - RED FIRE FINALfering a special event or discount throughout the Festival. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get involved with an event that attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the city, and generates over £6million for the York economy.

What Can I Offer?

It can be anything; a specially-themed event, a discount for participants and visitors or even a Viking-inspired window display. As long as it helps promote the Vikings influence on York it can be part of the Fringe programme.
