New winter festival brings Viking vibe to Charlotte

Feb 24, 2016

The inaugural Michigan Nordic Fire Festival is coming up in Charlotte this weekend. Current State's Scott Pohl talks with organizers Bryan Myrkle and William SaintAmour about what will be going on at the festival.


Charlotte has long hosted a summertime festival, Frontier Days, and the community has been trying to come up with something for the winter months. That has led to the creation of a new festival that debuts this weekend, the Michigan Nordic Fire Festival.

Current State's Scott Pohl talks with organizers Bryan Merkle and Will SaintAmour about the festival, which Myrkle suggests will have a Viking flair similar to a renaissance festival.
