Largs Viking Festival

Largs
Heritage

The festival takes place every year and draws crowds 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.

There are events for all the family throughout the week starting with the opening day parade, opening ceremony and various Viking activities. There will be an aerobatic display on the opening day and entertainment throughout the weekend afternoons with children’s events, including storytelling and workshops. Continental and Farmers’ Markets with a Craft Fayre will provide a different shopping experience throughout the Festival and who can’t fail to be intrigued by the owls of Owl Magic and the reptiles of Kirsty’s Critters.
