Held annually, this event in Alvalade, south of the district of Setúbal near Sines, relives the Middle Ages with arts and crafts, food, games, jousting tournaments, costume contests, and more.
Taking place on 17 – 20 September 2010, the fair incorporates an exciting programme of entertainment intended to appeal to all ages, and includes Jugglers, Bands, Displays, Theatre, Medieval Dancing, Fancy Dress and of course, craft stalls.
There could hardly be a more perfect setting for a truly authentic historical event that will capture adults and children’s’ imagination of life in medieval times. The entire town will be dressed to look like medieval times really incorporating the spirit of the event.
What makes this year’s event even more interesting is that the town is commemorating 500 years that a Letter of Privilege was issued by King D. Manuel I on the 20th September 1510.
The atmosphere is enhanced by the wandering minstrels and an early music choir. You can listen, participate or just relax with your pint of beer and a delicious lunch or dinner from the local spit roast.
