Húsafell Challenge

We are partnering with our friends at

USA Strength to bring you an incredible new event this year! The Húsafell Stone originated in Iceland and has been a strong man challenge for over 250 years! They've used the stone at world-wide competitions including the Arnold Strongman Classic in 2019. We will have an exact replica at Sherman Celtic Fest and will offer The Húsafell Stone challenge to the strongest in Texoma! Click the link to sign up today!

Sherman Celtic Festival is a certified Kilt-friendly event! If you've never worn one then you'd be surprised at how incredibly comfy and... breezy they are! Everyone loves a kilt- from our viking friends of the past or the future warriors from another galaxy!
