Return to dark ages at Medieval Fayre

Jousting Competition at the Blacktown City Medieval Fayre..jpg

Festivalgoers will be transported back in time to a land filled with swords, knights, horses and lances at Blacktown City Festival’s Medieval Fayre.

The Blacktown City Medieval Fayre will transform Nurragingy Reserve on Saturday and Sunday, 18 – 19 May.

“More than 80,000 people are expected to attend the event and get a rare insight into the world of lords, ladies, dames and knights,” Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP said.

“Nurragingy Reserve will be taken back to the dark ages over two days with numerous events throughout the day,” Mayor Bali said.

“There will be roving entertainment, free camel and pony rides, armour displays, handmade arts and crafts, a working blacksmith hut and the highlight of the event, a jousting competition with competitors from across Australia.

“For all the Game of Thrones fans, the Iron Throne and a fire breathing dragon are not to be missed.”

Following the success of the inaugural Medieval banquet in 2018, it will be returning bigger and better on Saturday, 18 May.

“There is no better way to follow up a jousting competition than by attending a Medieval Banquet offering an authentic experience,” Mayor Bali said.

“We want all diners to be dressed in theme so they can truly revel in the experience of dining on medieval food and drinks while taking part in various activities throughout the night.”
