2017 Midgard Fire Festival
Saturday, 1 July 2017
4:00 PM - 11:30 PM
Anyone who would like to participate in the Midgard Fire Festival this year, with a bonfire on the hill above Ross, are welcome along.

We did this last year, burning a Viking dragon boat, which can be seen in the banner above.

The event has a Viking theme, and we look to this being one of Tasmania’s great little winter events.

We will meet at the eastern end of Bridge Street in Ross at 4pm, where we take a Viking boat on a parade around the hill, to the place where it will be sent up in flames, to drive out the winter and warm up the night.

Participants can carry a lantern in the parade, which can be a candle held in a wire frame covered with paper and painted.

Songs can be sung.

After the dragon boat goes up in flames, we will light the fire drawings, to flame against the stars.

And when the coals have settled, we will make our way to the Man O’Ross hotel, where the Antler Room has been booked.

Participants will need to book a place with us for the Antler Room, as numbers are limited.

Yarns will be shared in the Antler Room by a blazing wood fire, of days of old and tales of adventure, especially in a Viking theme.

Who has a story to share?

There can be a workshop during the day, to make art for the night, such as a lantern, or a fire drawing.

We can also hold a Viking Fire Sale, of Viking theme arts and crafts.

The Midgard Fire Festival is planned to be an annual event, on the first Saturday in July.

In future years there could be a Viking fair and market on the Saturday, including a Scandinavian food theme.

Future events could also include an exhibition of Viking history, arts, crafts and ship building techniques, along with workshops and theatrical displays with martial arts.

We welcome ideas or suggestions that will add to our mid-winter fire festival in Ross?
