Plovdiv Medieval Festival

The festival will be held on June 23rd and 24th 2018 at Youth Hill (Mladezhki Halm) Park, Plovdiv (Bulgaria). It will take the residents and guests of the city on a weekend journey immersed in the atmosphere of medieval times. Within these two days, the visitors will have the opportunity to learn new and curious details about daily life in Europe during the Middle Ages. 150 participants will make this event happen.

Among the attractions which the local and foreign reenactors will offer to the festival guests will be an authentic military camp; martial demonstrations; medieval crafts and historically credible reconstructions of customs, fashion, and military equipment.

The visitors will be able to taste food and drinks based on medieval recipes; shoot a medieval bow; play medieval games; get entertained by a medieval jester; as well as take part in some of the crafts demonstrated: bladesmithing, pottery, leather crafts, hauberk knitting, coins cutting, weaving and embroidery, jewelry making, books and letters writing, iconography, witchcraft. Other activities will be medieval poetry reading; a comprehensive presentation of European medieval fencing; popular stories about the life of the ordinary people and the nobles; explanation of the subtleties of crafts and professions practiced in our city during medieval times. The practices during the pagan festival of Midsummer day will be demonstrated in the way they used to celebrate it in the Middle Ages.
Furthermore, the festival guests will have the opportunity to see and hear an inspiring performance of the medieval music bands Ambient Folklore, Der Dudelgeist and Eriney, all of them playing in Plovdiv for the first time ever. Their enchanting music and antique instruments will contribute to the revival of the distant medieval times.
