New at ASI – Summer Lawn Parties in June, July and August!

ASI's Thursday night parties, inspired by The Vikings Begin exhibition, are held once a month over the summer on the unsurpassed grounds of the Turnblad Mansion. Each features live music, Viking-era craft demos and pop-up activities, kubb tournaments, and special cocktails, beverages and light bites from FIKA for purchase. Every party will end with an outdoor showing of a different Vikings-related film at dusk. All ages are welcome. 

  • June 6 with the SlovCzech Band and The Vikings film
  • July 11 
  • August 8 with live music TBD and Outlander film

Lawn Party tickets: $15 ASI members / $20 non-members

July's Summer Lawn Party features:

  • Live music by the Roe Family Singers, who mix old time sounds with rock and roll
  • Demonstrations by Viking Fiber, complete with Icelandic sheep!
  • Horn Ceremony by Kari Tauring, who will also be available for private rune readings ($10) throughout the night.
  • Viking games run by the Viking Encampment
  • Samples from Hammerheart Brewing
  • Outdoor film viewing of Knives of the Avenger. Loosely based on the classic Western, Shane, Knives of the Avenger (1966, directed by Mario Bava) is the thrilling tale of a mysterious knife-throwing warrior who comes to a village seeking only sustenance for his horse, and stumbles on a gang of evildoers trying to assault a woman and her son.

Premium Ticket Option - Tour The Vikings Begin with The Theater of Public Policy

Tours run 5 - 6:30 p.m. before each Lawn Party

Add to your ASI Summer Lawn Party experience with an Improv Tour of The Vikings Begin prior to the party. Start your evening with an intimate, one-of-a-kind, interactive romp through of The Vikings Begin led by the improv comedy performers from The Theater of Public Policy (T2P2) before heading out to the lawn. This special ticket type includes a complimentary libation from FIKA. Merge the art of improv with the art of ASI and view the exhibition from a different perspective.
