Nordic Fire Festival brings archery, live music, games and more to Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, Mich. (WILX) — It may be chilly outside, but that’s not stopping the sixth annual Northern Fire Festival from happening.

It’s a festival with a Viking twist to celebrate winter, fire, family and fun.

After a year of shutdown due to the pandemic, the organizers are delighted with the return of the festival.

“We’re going to rip the roof off this joint,” said Bryan Myrkle, president of the Nordic Fire Festival.

“It’s just a great event,” Loki H said. “Great atmosphere.”

Loki is one of many Vikings who were at the start of a hot weekend. The festival, designed to welcome spring, has been going on since 2016.

“We’re going to rip the roof off this joint,” said Bryan Myrkle, president of the Nordic Fire Festival.

Myrkle encourages everyone to come to Charlotte and see what the festival is all about. Fire artists, musical performances, spear throwing and archery are just a few things on the weekend’s schedule.

“We’re going to have fire artists, we’re going to have live music all the time, we’ve got about 70 vendors here for people to check out,” Myrkle said.

The festival runs through Sunday at the Eaton County Fairgrounds.

Tickets are available on the Festival website. A list of events can be found here.
