Event Page:

Since the dawn of time most faires have been based in the Medieval and Renaissance setting. However, history is repeating itself for the new era. The Viking Age over the past 10 years has slowly made itself more mainstream due to TV, movies, and historical discoveries.

Spring Awakening Festival is a faire in the Viking Age setting. The Viking Age was focused on family, discovering new lands, and expectation. This faire will be 100% family friendly. We will be expanding the traditional faire idea with more Scandinavian elements.

We will be having Leatherworking, Blacksmithing, Woodworking, Folk Music, Family games and so much more!
Originally planned for Jefferson Texas, the venue there tried to double the price in the written agreement, basically holding the event hostage just 2 days before scheduled. That is not okay, and many local venues wanted to bring this festival closer to Texarkana. So, the good folks with the Miller County Fair Association stepped up to support the Boy Scouts, HYPE, and sponsors to make this event possible at the last minute.
