The Children’s Viking festival at Egge

Welcome to The Children’s Viking festival at Egge 12.-14. July 2019!

The city of Steinkjer in Trøndelag county has a rich history, a history every inhabitant is proud of. Steinkjer had a powerful position during the Viking age and was the residence of several chieftains. The saga tells us about the Vikings who lived at the Egge farm – where the festival takes place. The chieftains Olve and Kalv Arneson lived here. Olve was killed by King Olav Haraldson, later St. Olav, at Mære. Kalv was one of Olav’s men, and was offered the farm Egge and Olves wife Sigrid. Kalv moved to Egge and married Sigrid, and in 1030 Kalv had turned against King Olav in the battle at Stiklestad where King Olav was killed.
