Largs Viking Festival takes place every year on the promenade and draws people from near and far to celebrate the Viking heritage in Largs, notably the Battle of Largs of 1263 which was the scene of the last Viking invasion in the UK and led to the Treaty of Perth in 1266 when Norway ceded all claim to the Western Isles.
We will be bringing you all our festival favourites such as the opening parade and ceremony, live entertainment, fringe events, food and craft market, air displays, axe throwing, full Viking village and the ever-popular Festival of Fire, with fire procession. As well as the Viking skirmish, burning of the long boat, entertainment, and ending in a fabulous firework display.
