Alas, Summer's End has truly come to the end of its season. Countless years of being washed away by torrential rain has forced us to move our event. 

But fear not! Kraken's Beltane is here to take its place! Come celebrate our journey towards Spring's renewal and our 20th anniversary. 

Test your skills with sword and shield or bow and arrow. Try your hand at leather work and enter the arts and science competition.

Entertain the populace with your natural bardic gifts! Those who hunger for knowledge will be satisfied by a variety of classes offered. 

And those who lust for fun competition can pick up a pillow for the return of our Viking Pillow Bash and many other games. 

Krakenfjord promises another amazing event where friends come to meet new friends.



This event is geared towards camping in a beautiful location with excellent tenting areas, level RV parking with hook ups, 

drinkable water taps, washrooms on site, coin operated showers, small store (ice) and a serene creek running through the campsite.

Fire wood must be purchase on site, no outside firewood allowed. 

Dog friendly, An Tir leash laws apply. For safety reasons children must be monitored at all times due to the creek. 

This event is discreetly damp and no illegal substances allowed, this will be strictly enforced.


As usual merchants are most welcome to come and ply their wares. If you are planning on merchanting please notify Lady Hrafn at:

for information and spot reservation, as space is limited.


There will be a food vendor at the event! They will try to be open for dinner on Friday night, all day Saturday and possibly breakfast on Sunday.
