Hear ye, hear ye, Ladies & Gentlemen the battles have began
Ladies and Gentlemen this is one battle of a Faire not to miss! The St Ives Medieval Fair will transform St Ives Showground into the Medieval world with a historically accurate living medieval village and drama filled with non-stop entertainment and medieval fun!

The war has began

This family-friendly event will include an array of fun, activities, stalls, demonstrations, shows and much more to keep everyone entertained and of course be sure to dress up as a Lady, Knight, King or maybe a peasant from the medieval era.

Getting a feel of being a Knight (You can try on armour at one of the stalls)

Australia's largest historical joust will be on again this year as you witness live jousting with the very best Australian and international battles to the very end. It is the only jousting of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere where skilled knights face the full danger of a solid pine wood lance, exactly how they did back in the medieval times! The steel is real and the wood is solid so be sure not to miss this event!

The Spaniards ready for action

Other live demonstrations, shows and performances will include Dark Ages to Middle Ages battles, full-armoured war battles, real-life birds of prey show and after you can get a very close encounter by holding one of these majestic creatures for a fee.

Watch a life-size trebuchet firing watermelons hundreds of metres into the air, or visit the tavern and medieval village where you can try on real-life armour, hold tools and speak to the experts about the medieval armour and tools.

Musketeers having some fun

There will also be Knight Tournament which will feature a chorus of sliding armour plates cutting through the bellows of warriors swinging axes and swords, as well as other knight battles and displays - cheer on for more action!

Be sure to try the medieval feast in the grand feasting hall as you dine in company of the King and Queen, while jesters and musicians play for your favour. See website for all details about the Feast including pricing.

Jousting Time!

There will be plenty of food stalls and food trucks to satisfy the taste buds as well as market stalls where you can browse and pick up bargains.

Be immersed in the life of medieval times as you take in the atmosphere with music, shows, costumes, displays and much more!

Last man standing battles!

Be sure to scribble in the date and attend this "Medievalist Faire". It is the perfect family-friendly event as you step back into history.

There are two-day discount tickets available - see website.
