Fólkvangr Viking Village - Reenactors Pass
Fólkvangr is situated close to Gildehallen, in a field by the main festival area. The same general
rules apply for the ordinary festival camp and Fólkvangr, but with a few changes/additions. The Reenactors Pass is meant for viking or medieval reenactors - therefore you are obliged to camp and dress historically when staying in Fólkvangr.

Please read before registering!
INFORMATION AND RULES
Check-in and setting up camp is available from noon Monday 15 August, and we
recommend that you arrive Wednesday 17 August at the latest. You might have difficulties
driving your gear to Fólkvangr after Wednesday as the area will be blocked from entering
with cars sometime during Thursday. Get your wristbands and driving permits at the
Midgard Historical Center.
The fighters will reside in Fólkvangr. This area needs to be respected, i.e. guests are
prohibited from touching or trying out equipment without permition from the owner(s).
Weapons are forbidden – even blunt ones. Only Midgardsblot’s hired fighters are allowed
any sort of weapons.
IMPORTANT: We understand the need for tools that can unfortunately be abused as
weapons, but you bring them at your own peril, and they cannot be taken outside of
Fólkvangr, by you or anyone else. We strongly recommend hiding them in your tents when
not in use.
FOOD AND DRINKS
- Use a fire pan that is at least 15 cm (6′′) above the ground.
- Firewood will be provided for you, but try not to take more than you will need each day.
- Ashes must be completely extinguished before dumping them safely in a designated area.
- All tents must have a fire extinguisher placed to the right on the inside of the tent entrance.
DRESSCODE AND REENACTORS PASS
- No outside food or drink is allowed in the festival area. If you need to go grocery shopping
during the festival, please enter through the designated gates. Show your wristband to the guards
posted, they will be instructed to let you pass straight on through to Fólkvangr.
- The festival area will have bars which are open until after midnight, and is therefore subject
to alcohol restrictions (by Norwegian law) during opening hours. Fólkvangr is not affected
by this, but please respect the guidelines stated in the general festival rules, and pay
attention to the festival staff.
By registering, you agree to full responsibility regarding this information and rules.
Keepers of the Reenactors Festivalpass are obligated to camp and dress historically (viking/
medieval). We do not adhere to "plastic alarms", but we do appreciate that you pick up after
yourselves, and use the waste containers provided. Be a clean viking!
- Fólkvangr will be open to the regular audience for a limited time each day during the
festival, but this does not mean that you are under obligation to "be on display" (as you
would at any historical festival)
You will be given a designated area for setting up your tent(s) upon arrival. Please let us
know if you have any wishes for who else you'd like to camp with (other groups etc). We
can't make any promises besides doing our best.
If you need to sell your ticket(s), you should contact us because of the special requirements
for the Reenactors Pass. The recipient(s) of your tickets must also register and be accepted.
We might ask you for pictures or «proof» that you are eligible to buy the Reenactors Pass.
This is simply because we don't know you yet!
If there is any changes or new information, we will send it by email to the registered email adress.
The person who registers, should forward any information to the other registered participants in the
