LIVE PERFORMANCES IN THE PAVILION
Performers including live music, dancers and more will be performing all weekend long in the Austin-Kvelstad Pavilion in the waterfront park. Stay tuned for the official schedule and list of performers.
Be on the lookout, the Vikings will be roaming and pillaging along the parade route and in the waterfront park. There will also be Viking presentations and a Viking Village.
Shuttle service is available from North Kitsap High School. WildWise School is pleased to offer shuttle service to Viking Fest this year. The cost is $3.00 per way. All proceeds contribute financial assistance to families for children to attend their Forest Pre-School, Forest School for grades K-8, as well as Wilderness Rites of Passage for youth. Skål!
Downtown lots will be closed for use for the events.
There is limited handicap parking close to the event, so make plans to drop your loved one’s off downtown and then park. If you have a handicap placard there are a few spots close to Front Street, including the Edward Jones lot.
Keep in mind street parking in neighborhoods is for the residents and their guests, and 6th Ave is where the parade queue’s up on Saturday, so it is not available for parking during the parade.
