Bouillon Medieval Festival
Immerse yourself in the Middle Ages and enjoy the change of pace and a trip through time at this medieval festival! In the heart of Bouillon from 09 to 10/08/14!
Discover medieval crafts, food, entertainment, hunting and weaponry, and of course music!
There’ll be drums and lutes, minstrels and wandering entertainers to charm you and show you how to dance in a medieval style.
Various fantastic medieval groups will wander the streets and on the Saturday afternoon from 2pm, and will liven up different spots throughout Bouillon with their comedy sketches.
Camps and a parade
For the 4th consecutive year, visitors will discover around 20 camps of historical reconstructions from the 10th to the 13th century, at the foot of the castle.
The theme will focus on the period of the Crusades (11th and 13th century).
Several artisans (blacksmiths, iron founders, potters, bakers...) will exhibit their know-how among the camps present.
You will also have the chance to have a go at using a crossbow and attending a combat comedy sketch.
A colourful parade will begin at 3.30pm to the sound of minstrels, accompanied by knights, men-at-arms, Vikings...
During this time, the fortified castle and its surroundings will become the theatre to numerous shows and activities: 2 medieval camps, artisan work, medieval troops and a mix of fighters and falconers (show at 11am, 2pm, 3.30pm and 7pm).
The festival will be in full swing at the castle by the evening.
