Because of extremely dry and hot weather will it this year be a total ban on using any fires on the Viking farm/ Bukkøy. This includes all types of open fires like the fixed grills, disposable barbecues, and any form of propan/ gas operated kitchens etc. You will have the opertunity to buy food, Ice cream and cold drinks in the festival area. We also ask smokers to show great care and use only the designated smoking area.  We will provide a metal bucket with water and ask everyone to put out their cigarettes in this. The bucket will be situated by the big boathouse near the shoreline. Our biggest fear is that we will have a fire on Bukkøy / the Viking farm, so we are asking everyone to please respect these rules, for your own and others safety.

Thank you for your consideration.


This we are lucky to welcome Kjell Braaten to the Viking festival. He is a skilled musician who performs viking music with viking instruments.

During the Viking festival at Avaldsnes, he invites the children to sit around the fire and join him on a journey in music that started long, long ago.
