Excitement and adventure await all loyal subjects at the fifth annual St Ives Medieval Faire, where the St Ives Showground will transform into a captivating world of grand tournaments, brave knights, fearsome Vikings and lavish food.

This two-day celebration of medieval history is the nation's premier medieval history event, held in high regard amongst medieval re-enactors for its historical authenticity.

Over 350 Living History Re-enactors from all around Australia will journey to St Ives to set up fully interactive encampments, giving the public the opportunity to walk through and immerse themselves in seven centuries of history.

Jousters from across Europe, including Lady Caroline, from Sweden, Michaël Sadde from France, Arne Koets from The Netherlands, Per Estein Prøis-Røhjell from Norway and more - will make the trip to Australia to compete in full armour on horseback in what is the Southern Hemisphere's only solid lance joust. Medieval taverns across the venue will serve ales custom-made for the Faire by Crow's Nest all-female brewing team Two Birds Brewing.

Further highlights include Birds of Prey demonstrations, archery displays, Australia's only Giant Trebuchet catapault, costume competitions, bonfires, live music, workshops, artisans markets, and plenty of kids activities.

A VIP Feast option is on offer featuring authentic medieval suckling pig, spatchcock, parsnip pies, soups, cherry tarts & more, Grazing Table, Horse-Drawn Carriage VIP Transfers, premium members' seating for the Joust.
