Great Northern Viking Festival in 2019

The Great Northern Viking Festival is to premiere on the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula in October 2019.

The festival is scheduled for Oct. 3-6 and is hoping it will become an annual event. Across the four days, the organizer is looking to include events in various communities from Cook’s Harbour to L’Anse aux Meadows to Goose Cove, and most everywhere in between.

The festival has taken an interest in tourism in the area and they have felt a pressing need to have something to mark the end of the tourism season.

One of the big ideas they have is a “Great Northern Viking Breakfast”. This would include a seven-course meal served over two hours, and an education on wine. It will be a social event that will allow attendees to learn about wine making and pairing it with certain foods.
