The Medieval Markets will feature hand-crafted goods and wares that are completely unique.
Over 60 stallholders from across Australia will converge on St Ives Showground for the two day Faire on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September.
Many of those will be bringing items for sale that are handcrafted and specially made for the 20,000 people expected at the Medieval Faire this year.
Among the wares on display will be unique items from authentic stores including Esford, Mainly Medieval and Armstreet offering clothing and accessories, handmade leather goods and chain mail armour. There is also medieval clothing for children and handmade children’s toys.
Marketgoers can see medieval blacksmiths and medieval pottery made on an authentic kick wheel by Flaming Gargoyle Pottery. There are workshops to make your own chainmail, wooden shield and swords.
Other stallholders include a soothsayer, an heraldic illustrator, a medieval emporium with a range of items for children and an archer selling custom made bows and arrows.
Foodstuffs with a medieval theme and some specially brewed liqueurs cap off a fascinating display of items for sale.
Tickets for the Faire with guaranteed parking and the Medieval Feast on Friday 22 September can be pre-booked at www.stivesmedievalfaire.com.au
