Come and enjoy the 11th Gumeracha Medieval Fair!
The eleventh annual Gumeracha Medieval Fair will be held on 6 & 7 May in Federation Park from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 10am-4pm Sunday 2017. Again, there will be another two days of medieval fun and excitement. This year the resident Oracle has forecast fair weather and the event promises to be even bigger than the 15,000-strong crowd that came last year!
The very popular “Merchants Lane” will be offering a wide range of medieval-style crafts and activities. The dedicated children’s area will again have storytellers, face painters, a children’s costume-maker, workshops, as well as the Native Animal Nursery and the popular Punch and Judy show to ensure there is a lot for the whole family to enjoy. The daily Costume Competition on the banks of Kenton Creek will cause a flurry of excitement for everyone!
The King’s Horses Equestrian Group showing off their “Jousting skill at arms” will be there to thrill the crowds again. In the combat arena, the Knights and Vikings from the Medieval Re-enactment Groups will again clash swords in tournaments (together with all sorts of “daring do”) and defeat their opponents.
The Viking encampments will again be huge this year with Re-enactors coming from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. They are always particularly interesting, demonstrating their craftwork and techniques of campfire cooking for the patrons as well as their fighting skills in the arena.
Once again, musicians from across the state will provide medieval folk music from many cultural backgrounds. There will also be two new stage areas for the entertainment – a “Medieval Solar” as well as a walled Medieval Garden.
More Food purveyors will again be following the medieval theme with sumptuous tastes to tempt the passer-by. Foods and beverages derived in the local Torrens Valley area, Wendy and David Cook of the Birdwood Wine & Cheese Centre will be there in the Tavern together with the famous “Mien Hosts” from the Lobethal Bierhaus serving their award winning beers and the Thistle Meadery.
