The Vista Viking Festival is a very big Ting.
"Ting ", is the Old Norse name for the governing assembly all free people. They would gather in their communities to make law and to decide cases. But a Ting was not all politics. A Ting was often a multi-day festival. There were musicians, and entertainers. Merchants set up booths for their wares, Brew masters brought barrels of ale and mead. During the Thing, marriages were arranged, alliances were crafted, news and gossip exchanged and friendships forged and nurtured. We bring the spirit of the Old Norse Ting alive each September, at Norway Hall.
The producers of the festival share a commitment to preserve and promote Norwegian, and Norwegian-American cultural and heritage.
To conserve and celebrate our Norse history and heritage with living history and cultural activities. To support and contribute to our community. To bring a truly unique cultural and entertainment festival experience to Vista, California.
