St Ives Showground
For the third year Sydney’s St Ives Showground will be hay-strewn and hand-forged into an accurate recreation of Medieval Europe. Covering cultures and customs from the Dark Ages to the High Middle Ages, your ticket will give you the unmatched experience of authentic medieval events, shows and atmosphere (all 100% Plague-free!).
Feel the soft fletch of an arrow graze your cheek as you let loose your bowstring. Surge and jeer with the crowd at the jousting tournament, where the thunder of hooves and the crunch of armour sees your champion victorious. Bargain with peddlers of skill and beauty to build your inventory of weapons, armour and jewellery. Later, tear at joints of meat in a grand feasting hall while jesters and musicians play for your favour in the firelight.
This two-day festival offers a glimpse into an amazing pocket of time now lost to history. It lives on in the passion of our artisan crafters, our re-enacters, our organisers, and you.
St Ives Medieval Faire – Spectacular Family Entertainment
Our program of events fills the needs of both the avid fan and the curious. Everything except food, drink and goods in the St Ives Medieval Faire is included in your ticket price. Every demonstration, every show, every experience is yours to explore once you walk through those gates. For the family, there is a wealth of activities and stalls to keep everyone entertained, organised and well-sustained throughout the day.
Complete your immersion into this fascinating time by donning your own tunic and armour for the festival. Dress yourself as a tyrannical king, a warrior, a merchant, or a character of your own fantasy. Prizes will be awarded to those who impress.
Whatever your station and status out there in the modern world, the St Ives Medieval Faire will have you engaged and fascinated, from rooster-call on the first day to the final clang of the gates on the last.
