Abbey Medieval Festival

Abbey Medieval Festival is the largest celebration of medieval culture, 600 to 1600AD in Europe and the Middle East, in the southern hemisphere and a premier event in the Moreton Bay Region, located north of Brisbane, Queensland.

Held every July, the festival delivers authentic medieval experiences from the Medieval Banquets, a Kids Dig It! Medieval Family Fun Week, to the main 2 day mega medieval event, where history comes alive thanks to re-enactment encampments, workshops, displays and the highlight, the Joust!

The 2020 Abbey Medieval Festival will be hosted on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 July. To stay in the loop, follow the event on Facebook
