Australian Medieval Fair Calendar – 2020

There are lots of great medieval fairs and historical re-enactment displays in Australia every month. We offer a central directory to find your local medieval fair or renaissance fair. If we’ve missed your favourite medieval re-enactment event, please email us on to let us know! We are always looking for news and reviews from your medieval travels, too.

All of these events have a medieval theme or large medieval presence, and are open to the public. There are also many wonderful private events around Australia where specific medieval groups gather. If you’re interested in private re-enactment events, we suggest visiting your local medieval fair to meet some re-enactors and then go from there.

  1. Hi,

    Around three years ago I was talking with a knight from Nelligen (close to Batemans Bay, on the road to Canberra), Eurobodalla – South Coast NSW. Unfortunately I have forgotten his name, maybe Sir Bradley?!?! He looked like a classical knight in his suit of armour on the web based materials he referred me too. He said that he could provide medieval events for people of all abilities on his property and that he is experienced working with people with disabilities. I am now working in disability services for Eurobodalla Shire Council and would like to find out more about attending and participating in Medieval events. I would greatly appreciate it if you could forward on local contact information to me.

    1. Greetings Ann!

      You are almost certainly looking for the great Darrell Bossley of Black Flat Friesians. I would contact the Bossleys via their facebook page at

  2. Great calendar, thank you. Any news on the Jousting Championships for 2020? Will it be at Lardner Park again?

    1. No news has yet reached us. We’ll certainly keep you up to date on future locations of the World Jousting Championships or medieval fairs in Gippsland. Lardner Park is a spectacular venue!
