Since 2011, The Irminfolk has held Folkish Summer Hallowing for Odinists and Asatruar from around the country to come together and spend time with like-minded Folk; to share ideas, to uphold our traditions, create new bonds and friendships; to celebrate the season and hail the Gods and our ancestors.
For our main hallowing ritual, we will be building an Osberg viking ship, to sacrifice in honor of the gods. Anyone who has something personal they would like to place upon the ship, to offer up to the gods, is encouraged to do so.
This year, thanks to numerous donations and the generosity of the heathen community as a whole, ALL children, 17 and under, are FREE!
With plenty of activities for adults and children alike, it will be a weekend full of fun for the entire family.
We will also be holding our annual mead brewers contest, so don’t forget to bring that delicious bottle of mead to enter it into the contest.
We will be updating the event page and 2017 schedule as we get closer to the hallowing so check back often for any new additions. All information regarding pricing for individuals, children and day trippers can be found on our Registration page. Sleeping quarters in a cabin camp setting, catered food for the whole weekend, craft workshops, entertainment, literary workshops, lake sports and other games plus much much more will all be covered with your admission price. Most important of all, the bonds you make and friendships created with other Folkish Heathens last longer than just one weekend which comes once a year. The bonds you forge will be forever.
Don’t forget to bring some extra spending cash (or futhmarks!) to purchase items from our vendors and to try your luck at our raffle.
Make new friends, create new ties of kinship and further your bond with great people. Escape the shackles of your day to day jobs and be free with the Folk. Raise a horn to the Gods with some of the finest folk around.
