Festival overview

Come and participate in the finest medieval experience with us

With a festival ticket you can come see nearly 200 merchants and artisans at the marketplace. You may also see acrobats or fearsome vikings roaming the festival grounds, and watch life in the medieval campground. For the family’s young ones there is also the Children’s Village.

Enjoy medieval themed delicacies, watch merciless duels in the buhurt arena and discover the war horse camp. In addition to all of this, your ticket also allows you to visit the magnificent medieval castle of Häme, and its unique prison, which now functions as a museum. You can bask in the atmosphere even better by participating in the banquets held in the castle’s beautiful halls or by dressing in a medieval costume. The costume rental store makes sure there will be an outfit for everyone who wants one.
