Travel back through time at the fifth annual St Ives Medieval Faire this September, as Sydney’s St Ives Showground is hay-strewn and hand-forged into a fully immersive, accurate recreation of daily life in Medieval Europe. 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.

Visitors to the Faire will also get the opportunity to experience the excitement and adrenaline of the International Solid Lance Jousting Tournament. 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.

There's also Birds of Prey demonstrations, Archery displays, Australia’s only Giant Trebuchet catapault, Costume competitions, bonfires, live music, workshops, artisans markets, and kids activities. Enjoy a wide array of foods from our Medieval Food Court, and sip on Special Edition Ales custom-made for the Faire by Two Birds Brewing at Taverns across the Faire.

Ticket purchasers also have the option to experience a slide of noble life and make an VIP Upgrade: the Royal Court Experience with Long Table Gourmet Feast features authentic medieval suckling pig, spatchcock, parsnip pies, soups, cherry tarts & more, Grazing Table, Horse-Drawn Carriage VIP Transfers, premium members' seating for the Joust.
