This Viking Festival In Washington Will Transport You Back In Time And Across The Globe

Poulsbo is known affectionately as Little Norway, but its other nickname is the Viking City. The charming little city is located on the Kitsap Peninsula, and if you’ve ever been, you know it tends to steal your heart. And one of the best times to go is in May, when Poulsbo’s Scandinavian founders are celebrated at Viking Fest.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Mark your calendar for the third weekend in May and check out Viking Fest. And while you’re there, spend plenty of time exploring Poulsbo — it’s worth it.
