Abbey Medieval Festival (Tournament Weekend)
July 11 @ 9:00 am - July 12 @ 4:00 pm
Knights in shining armour, damsels holding their own, a medieval market place and 5 tournaments! Where else would you want to be?
This 2 day tournament allows visitors to experience life in the Middle Ages, specifically 600 to 1600AD in Europe and the Middle East. The Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology together with re-enactors, jousters, performers, food vendors and merchants deliver one of Australia’s premier living history events.
Take a stroll through the market place to find all you need to furnish your manor and keep warm. Taste the delights of the age from one of the many food stall. Sit on the edge of your seat while our combatants vie for the glory of being a tournament champion – Joust, Archery, Holmgang, Oil Wresting, Strength and Skill.
