“Welcome to the web page of the Gimli Viking Village. For the past ten years, the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba and members of The Vikings – Vinland Historical Society have brought you The Viking Village.
This year, we are celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba.
The focus of the Village is on public education and interaction. Reenactors present daily life of the Vikings in an authentic setting. They live in a period encampent for the duration of the event. Each day there is a demonstration of Viking warfare tactics and weapons on the field adjacent to the village.”
