Medieval Fair and Festival information
Medieval Fair and Festival Information around the World
This is the latest update on Medieval Fairs and Festivals around the world. These colorful events tend to be held in the same month each year, but the actual day they begin and end always changes by a few days. To give you the best possible information, the month of each faire and festival is shown here, along with a link to their sites. As dates are updated or changed, the latest information will always be available here. Check back when you are about to get dressed for these lusty events, and make sure that all's well.
By the way, the names "fair" and "festival" mean the same thing, it's just a matter of style. And when an entry says "a major event" that means more than 100,000 people go to it each time it is held. The underlined name of each faire is a link to their website for any additional details you may need.

Got a Faire or Festival photo of your own?
Share it and raise everyone's jealousy factor with your great costume, fun times, or magic moment you captured. If you don't want to show your real name with the image, make up a good Medieval one and send it off.

Society for Creative Anachronism
This society is active all year around with costumed Medieval events that include feasts, revelry and tournements. These "kingdoms" cover the whole world, so wherever you live there are events near you. And you don't need to be a member to go to events.
Medieval History, Crusades and Knights Templar
We have picked out some of the more fascinating people and events of the Middle Ages and include them here. The actual beginning of the Crusades dates back to 325 AD and a woman named St. Helena. Later the Templars became wealthy by introducing bank checks to Europe, but could not have done it without the literate brothers among them who wore green robes with the red cross. Strange but true.
I am the editor, chief cook and bottlewasher of this fine and thriving establishment on the web. Known as Sir Knight Sanford, I have been going to the Renaissance Faire for upwards of twenty years. Your thoughts and inputs are always welcome. Enjoy!
