Check us out on KSPS!

Kimberley City Bakery Medieval Festival

This will be the year to be at The Kimberley City Bakery Medieval Festival!

Taking a page from the brilliant Douglas Adams', this year will be the culmination of our Trilogy in Four Parts. After winning the awards for Most Influential Women In Business in the Kootenays, The Kimberley Chamber Tourism Award, and nominated for the Game Changer Tourism Award, we are pleased to see the impact this festival has had on the Kootenays and all the visitors that we have welcomed to our fair city of Kimberley. We were also thrilled to see the segment KSPS put together during the 2017 festival. 

This will be our biggest and best year yet, as we welcome back knights from across Western Canada, and even our very own Cranbrook knights, as well as the always popular Vikings. This year will be concentrated at The Coronation Park Ball Diamonds 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, the excitement is already palpable. As one visitor said last year, you could spend the whole weekend, and not see everything! So plan to spend the weekend! 

Answers to some commonly asked questions:

What age is it geared towards? All ages. There is history, entertainment, interactive demonstrations, entertainers, and even kiddie fights for the kids to fight the Vikings with pool noodles to interact with all age groups!

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

How do I become a sponsor? A sponsorship form is available at the top of this page, or feel free to stop by the bakery and talk to Michelle. 

Can I be a vendor? We are always accepting vendors, as long as they have a medieval theme to their wares, to help create a more authentic event. The Vendor application form is at the top of this page. 

When are the events happening? The parade starts at 10:00 through the Platzl, with the remainder of the events taking place at the Coronation Park Ball Diamonds, and the final farewell parade through the Platzl Sunday afternoon. 

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. 

What happens next? Is it really the last year? Yes, this is the last year we will be putting on the Medieval Festival. We have a few interested parties that have expressed interest in taking over the festival, but we will not be looking at that any further until after the 2018 festival is over. 

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

This will be our biggest and best year yet, as we invite the Vikings back, for the biggest Viking Village ever! We will also be bringing back the NCCF knights to show off knight fighting, as well as a Medieval Village. Whether you are a Viking or Medieval fanatic, or visiting for the first time, the Viking Village and  Medieval Village  will entertain and educate all our visitors, while putting on the best shows in the Kootenays for the summer of 2018! 

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 yet, for this highly anticipated event.

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 place to visit.

Thank you,

Eric and Michelle
