Arrival and departure

The Foteviken Viking Market begins one day before the actual market with a "pre-market" held on Thursday the 30th of June. The Viking Market is then held from Friday 1st of July to Sunday 3rd of July.

The Viking Week is held between Midsummer and the Viking market (27th to 30th of June), as many Viking reenactors arrive a few days before the actual market. These days are used for meetings for the various Viking Age crafts, to experiment and exchange experience.

If you arrive early in the week and then leave until the start of the market, it may affect where your tent is placed, in order to keep the Viking Town area as lively as possible throughout the week.

The day from which you are present for the rest of the event.
Keep in mind that you may only pack up and leave the market area during the morning or evening, not during the hours when the market is open to the public.
