About the event
The Inaugural 2021 Sussex Inlet Viking Festival was held on the 141st anniversary of the arrival of Jacob Ellmoos to Sussex Inlet.
Jacob came from the little Danish village of Ensted, near Hostrup, Aabenraa. The Festival also recognises the importance of the local Aboriginal community who are sharing their culture as part of the festival. The festival showcases local businesses, a viking village and camp with tents and fire pits. Experience how the vikings lived, watch Re-enactments of the fierce battles and games that vikings played.
Festivities are centered on the west bank of the waterway called Sussex Inlet, at Elmoos Reserve, with Christian's Minde in full view on the east bank.
There is live music all day long on 2 stages + 2 Kids Zones with rides and entertainment included with your ticket. Enjoy the antics of axe juggling, fire light & magic, Food & Wine, 2 x Viking Beer Garden's and an amazing range of food stalls, cooking displays, crafts, amusements and activities for the kids as well as Scandinavian food and much more...
