I write, read, travel, garden, renovate, work, drink coffee - all the usual things. My lovely partner often accompanies me, and of course my constant companions, two feisty terriers, are never far from my side. We live in and enjoy South Australia.

Medieval times come to life in the hills
In 2019, the Gumeracha Medieval Fair is on again! Expect much fanfare and finery over the weekend of May 4th and 5th. The pretty Adelaide Hills town of Gumeracha again hosts all the spectacle of Medieval times coming to life!

The Medieval Fair takes place on the grassy green grounds of Federation Park, slap-bang in the heart of Gumeracha. Picturesque and reedy Kenton Creek runs through the Park, adding authentic atmosphere to the expansive outdoors event.

Dress for the theme, as many people do! Enjoy the wide array of entertainments and demonstrations. Wander among the market alleyways and purchase some fine fare to commemorate your day in Medieval times!

Join in the Entertainment

This is a family friendly event! (I even see well-behaved family dogs enjoying the day out with their Mums and Dads).

Seek out the animal nursery to see our cutest wildlife up close and cuddly in the arms of their carers (you might even get to pet). And find face painting and puppetry for the kiddies!

Talk to Craftsmen as they Demonstrate their Talents

Of course, there are also many options for food and bevvies, including a licensed arena for the grown-ups. Wherever you go you will be spoilt for choice!

Book your tickets online to save time at gates, which open at 10:00am on each day, and close at 5:00pm Saturday and 4:00pm Sunday.

Parking can be had for a measly $5, at the adjacent footy oval. See attendants as you drive in, and please follow parking instructions. Otherwise, try your luck at finding free parking in the streets and get some exercise walking to the Fair Grounds!
