Viking Fire Festival 2019

The Irish National Heritage Park, Ferrycarrig, Wexford and Wexford Quay front

The first annual Viking Fire Festival will take place in Wexford town on September 28th 2019.

The historical Wexford town will be transformed back to Viking times as the Wexford Quayside will host an immersive experience akin to life some 900 years ago. Wexford town will hark back to its roots as the quayside is transformed into a real-life Viking Village. The ancient settlement will be populated with a host of re-enactors who will offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy storytelling, fire events, a Viking market, coin striking, a big dig, Viking music and even the chance to participate in some slave trading! This event is free of charge. The Saturday evening will culminate with a Viking parade on the Wexford Quayside with a fire show by renowned group Inferno. They will fuse fire with circus and movement arts to create a spectacular fire show.
