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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
