Excitement and adventure await all loyal subjects at the fifth annual St Ives Medieval Faire, where the St Ives Showground will transform into a captivating world of grand tournaments, brave knights, fearsome Vikings and lavish food.
We’re giving away 5 x Family Passes to the Faire, each is for 2 Adults and 2 Children and each pass is valued at $99! The Faire is on Saturday 22 September and Sunday 23 September 2018 at St Ives Showground.
This two-day celebration of medieval history is the nation’s premier medieval history event, held in high regard amongst medieval re-enactors for its historical authenticity. Over 350 Living History Re-enactors from all around Australia will journey to St Ives to set up fully interactive encampments, giving the public the opportunity to walk through and immerse themselves in seven centuries of history.
Jousters from across Europe, including Lady Caroline, from Sweden, Michaël Sadde from France, Arne Koets from The Netherlands, Per Estein Prøis-Røhjell from Norway and more – will make the trip to Australia to compete in full armour on horseback in what is the Southern Hemisphere’s only solid lance joust. Medieval taverns across the venue will serve ales custom-made for the Faire by Crow’s Nest all-female brewing team Two Birds Brewing. Further highlights include Birds of Prey demonstrations, archery displays, Australia’s only Giant Trebuchet catapault, live music performances across two stages all day (with highlight acts including Renaissance duo Wayward and the Sydney Balalaika Orchestra), costume competitions, bonfires, live music, workshops, artisans markets, and plenty of kids activities.
Fun For The Kids
It’s a really unique, educational and fun day out for the kids – we have kids’ “Knight School”, archery tag, a petting zoo, pony rides, a Jesters juggling academy, and the chance for kids to walk through seven centuries’ worth of fully immersive “living history” camps and ask the re-enactors questions about what they’re making and doing. Not to mention the excitement of the Joust!
A VIP Feast option is on offer featuring authentic medieval suckling pig, spatchcock, parsnip pies, soups, cherry tarts & more, Grazing Table, Horse-Drawn Carriage VIP Transfers, premium members’ seating for the Joust.
