Calling all Vikings! The SKåL Taproom, 476930 HWY 95 in Ponderay, is hosting their second annual Viking Fest Thursday, May 17 and they’re seeking Vikings to participate.

SKåL is interested if there are any Renaissance fair vendors that would like to set up for the weekend and celebrate Norway’s Independence.

Manager Lisa Campbell said anyone interested in vending their Viking wares at the Viking Fest contact her at (208) 265-6163.

The second annual Viking Fest on May 17 will feature tons of activities like scavender hunt bike rides with prizes and awards, live music, food from Edelwagen Food Truck, drink specials and more.
