At Winterfest Sydney Medieval Fair, enter a medieval realm which brings the settings of Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings to life!
Escape the everyday and explore a world of history and fantasy at this popular family-friendly fair. From knights, vikings and peasants to unicorns and orcs, the two-day event features an extensive program to delight the whole family.
Winterfest is one of the longest-running annual medieval fairs in the Sydney metro region, held on the first weekend of the winter school holidays, 7th and 8th of July, at the Hawkesbury Showground, between Richmond & Windsor.
Immerse yourself in the action with a wonderful line-up of entertainment, including:
Have a go at hands-on activities including a traditional archery range, Celtic drumming workshops, and the chance to learn to use a rapier. Children can practice their skills with (safe) swords and get creative with medieval themed drawing, colouring and crafts. The popular Winterfest unicorns are back, and they love pats from you and the kids.
Visit the 'Artisan Alley' with lots of educational and interactive displays of traditional skills, and take a stroll through the 'Merchant's Row' to browse the vibrant range of stalls including quality artisan and handcrafted wares.
Roaming entertainers add to the festival atmosphere, including musicians and minstrels, and 'Feldergast the Fool' the wandering jester. There is face-painting for the children and a great selection of quality food vendors to choose from.
Immerse yourself in the festival environment by wearing something a bit different from the usual. The Winterfest Costume and Cosplay competition returns in 2018. Join the competition parade for judging, or if that's not your thing, you may be surprised with an on-the-spot prize. Come along in a medieval-inspired outfit or fantasy-style clothing; all medieval periods, cultures, and styles are welcome.
With so much to do, explore and discover, Winterfest is perfect school holiday family entertainment.
