Medieval Fair and Festival Information around the World

This is the latest update on Medieval Fairs and Festivals around the world. The 2013 event dates have been posted here where they are available. Where those dates are not yet released, use the 2012 dates as a good guide for the approximate days of upcoming activities. Check back for further updates as they become available.

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.

The days of knights and ladies come alive again in this remarkable new book about the Templars. It reveals the personal side of these knights by following the individuals who made them great -- and them helped them survive when kings and church turned against them.

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.

See more about the society here.


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!
