Horde at the Hive - 2019

Hosted by the Chinook Honey Company

Travel back in time and experience the fascinating world of Norse culture by taking a trip to our Viking Village for some genuine family fun! Come cheer on epic displays of live-action battle reenactments (kids get to do mock battles too), throughout the weekend. If you need fortification there will be a food truck with a healthy variety of victuals and tastings of award-winning mead – an ancient fermented beverage made here at the farm with honey that Norsemen termed the “Nectar of the Gods”. Visit our Artisan market to explore our curated vendors and their wide variety of wares from near and far.

Combine your experience with an Apiary or Meadery tour to learn the secrets of honey and mead production. Afterwards visit our Country Store for more unique, local products – and mead of course!

This event will be bigger than ever this year with more activities planned to keep everyone entertained so stay tuned for announcements soon!

Kimberly Viking Festival - 2019

Founded in 2014 by Eric and Michelle Forbes of the Kimberley City Bakery, this festival celebrating Viking history has quickly become a favourite destination for visitors during the summer festival season. And it’s easy to see why. The sounds of a Viking battle cry fill the air, the sight of archers in ancient garb, the ladies in the Living History Village weaving and tending the cooking fires. Wander the grounds and visit with the warriors. Stop in the Children’s Village to make a craft or hear a story. You may even be asked to join in a song!

Age 6 and under: FREE
Age 7-18 (youth): $5
