Outlaw Music in Markerville

Outlaw Music (JoLynn McGillivray & Gerry Bradshaw) performed for the Thursday, July 29th “Dinner & Date Night” in the Creamery Courtyard. The entertainment, the food, the weather … another perfect combination for the second “Date Night” of 2021.
Highlights included Sweet Caroline, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door, and Jolene to name just a few!

Thank you to Outlaw Music, Historic Markerville and the staff at the Kaffistofa for making it happen.

Markerville was treated to an evening of live music by Jaydin Vonkeman.

The Creamery opened for this special event, allowing everyone to grab something to eat before the show. With ice cream for dessert, folks settled into their lawn chairs or took advantage of provided seats and picnic tables to sit back, relax and enjoy the concert. #jaydinvonkeman

Sons of Fenrir

Some video from July 17, 2021 when the Sons of Fenrir visited #historicmarkerville.

Despite the group’s demonstration warmup on Saturday, they seemed to have been soundly defeated in final battle. Better luck next year!

Hatí and Sköll?

Found wandering along Johnson Avenue in Markerville, (l to r): Scott, Kelsey, Violet, Christopher, and Rupert are armed with their best Viking scowls and ready to face whatever a visit from The Sons of Fenrir might entail.

Iceland’s National Day celebration in Historic Markerville began fashionably late … by one month. It’s normally held on June 17th each year, but was wisely moved to July 17th for 2021 due to the scheduled pandemic restrictions “lift” in early July.

Spectators began gathering at noon for the market and a chance to take part in games and take a closer look at the tools and weapons of days gone by. The Sons of Fenrir greeted each other and began their re-enactment at 1 pm. Following are photos from the day, including the Lady of the Mountain — d’Arcy Gamble — seated on stage with princesses Kelsey Bennett and Kennedy Gamble just after the Procession of the Fjallkona mid-afternoon.
