TAKING PLACE
July 8-9, 2017

Kimberley, B.C.

Kimberley City Bakery Medieval Festival

This year join the Kimberley City Bakery's new location in the Medieval Village for a new bakery experience!

The heart of the Medieval Festival this year will be in The Large Coronation Park Ball Diamond next to Centennial Hall. With our Medieval Bakery, a local meadery, Vendors, Viking Village, Medieval Village, Viking Fight Reenactment, Archery, and NCCF Fighting area, our resident barbarian, and more. As one visitor said last year, you could spend the whole weekend, and not see everything! So plan to spend the weekend! For Canada's 150th, it will be a great look at our past, history, and some of the things that have helped make Canada great today. 


Answers to some commonly asked questions:


What age is it geared towards? All ages. There is history, entertainment, interactive demonstrations, a puppeteer, and even kiddie fights for the kids to fight the Vikings with pool noodles to make sure no age group  is forgotten!


Is there an admission? No. It is free. Donations are welcome to help bring in the acts and entertainers, and there are shirts and banner posters for sale at the bakery and during the festival, and donation boxes are currently situated at The Bakery and The Elks Club in Kimberley, and will be at the Festival Information tables as well. Come enjoy Western Canada's Largest Free Medieval Festival. 


When are the events happening? The parade starts at 10:00 through the Platzl, and a schedule and map will be available soon with the times and locations of all of the events. 


If I want to join a club of knights/Vikings, who do I contact? There will be Vikings and Knights at the Medieval festival with lots of information. 


If you have other questions, feel free to contact us by e-mail at: kimberleymedievalfestival@hotmail.com or messaging us on our Facebook page, and we look forward to seeing you soon!


The Vikings will be back bigger and better than ever. We will also be bringing back the NCCF knights to show off knight fighting, as well as a Medieval Village. Many people are coming to Kimberley - the Bavarian City of the Rockies, without knowing about the links to Europe. A Medieval Village with knights, lords, ladies, and entertainers will help you learn about links to our past here in Kimberley as well as an important part of the past on which Canada was founded.

We are very proud of the historical accuracy which our Vikings and Knights use to recreate the past and educate and entertain the public, and hope to make this year our best year yet to help celebrate and learn about our past and celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.

This will be a free festival (donations appreciated!) open to all the public, so we welcome everyone to attend, learn something new, meet new friends, create new memories, and enjoy one of the best weekends of the summer right here in Kimberley, BC. 

We also hope to see you here. Kimberley is truly a most beautiful spot in the world.

Thank you,

Eric and Michelle
