21. - 22. August 2020
On august 21. and 22. 2020 it is time for Horsens Medieval Festival to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
With around 60.000 guests Horsens Medieval Festival is one of the biggest of its kind i Northern Europe. More than 1.000 people are involved in creating the festival.
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.
The programme for 2020 is not ready yet.
However, you can look forward to experiencing knights jousting, jugglers, flag throwing, historical experts, storytellers, fire jugglers and much more.
At the Festival you can always visit the many beautiful camps and chat with the many enthusiasts among exhibitors, merchants and artists. They all posses a great passion for the Middle Ages and reveal everything from an authentic knights’ life and weaponry to needlecraft and basket weaving.
In the Medieval Market Place you can meet merchants from all corners of the world when they arrive in Horsens to sell their wares.
In the Market Place you can buy all sorts of things – from locally grown spices to the latest in medieval fashion. Don’t expect to be able to buy a soda, a cup of coffee or to get tomato ketchup, napkins or a fork for your food – they didn’t exist in the middle ages.
Please note that change can still be made in the programme.
