21. - 22. August 2020
This spring we have given the festival a bit of a makeover with a new look, new website and a new name. From now on the official name for the festival is no longer European Medieval Festival but Horsens Medieval Festival.
But don’t worry, the festival will be the same.
Horsens Medieval Festival works closely with the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration to ensure the safety and high quality of food during the Festival. We expect the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration to conduct tests in a large number of food stalls during the Festival. It is the stallholders’ own responsibility to observe the guidelines of the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration.
If your participation is in conjunction with the sale and manufacture of food, you must pay particular attention to the following:
If you are in doubt about anything or have questions, please contact the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration.
As a stallholder, you are responsible as to whether there are claims from the Danish Tax Authorities, SKAT, regarding VAT registration of your stall. It is the stallholder’s responsibility to comply with the laws. SKAT has the power to close your stall if their officers visit you at the Festival, and you cannot provide sufficient documentation.
You can find more information at www.skat.dk or by calling SKAT on tel +45 7222 1818.
At Horsens Medieval Festival, we strictly adhere to the current Danish weapons legislation as issued by the Ministry of Justice, regarding selling and possession of weapons. We recommend that you speak to the Police Administrative Centre, ACV, in Holstebro, (telephone +45 7020 1473 lines open Mon, Tues, Thu 10am-3pm and Fridays 10am-1pm), if you have questions about the interpretation and enforcement of the law. We accept no responsibility for any misinterpretation of Danish legislation.
Use thoughtfulness and common sense and limit the scope of sharp knives, swords, etc. We have compiled the most important things you need to know about weapons at the Horsens Medieval Festival.

From 2018 Danish National Police are the licensing authority in cases concerning applications for export, import and transit of weapons.
Contact ACV or the Festival Secretariat if you are in any doubt. It is your responsibility as a seller to ensure that the buyer has the necessary permits. Horsens Medieval Festival cannot be held responsible for breaches of Danish legislation.
If you or your group are planning to bring weapons at Horsens Medieval Festival, please contact Production Coordinator, Nicolas Aasberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is a legal requirement to have a weapons permit and we have endeavoured to simplify this process for performers arriving from outside Denmark.
For the duration of the Medieval Festival, Horsens Municipality works in close cooperation with Denmark’s Regional Police Headquarters who issue such permits.
The Regional Police will issue permits to battle groups and individual participants who can document, by means of a membership certificate, that they are a member of a Medieval Society listed on Horsens Municipality’s registration of participating associations, and where it is clear that the weapon is part of the attire.
The weapon registration form and the documentation for proof of membership must be submitted to Horsens Municipality no later than 14 days before the event.
The Medieval Festival Organising Committee must emphasise that the rules on possession of weapons during the Festival must be complied with, and that any individuals who are found with illegal weapons or without a permit may be prosecuted.
