Twenty-seven seasons in beautiful Southern Ontario

The faire is an interactive day consisting of vendors, hands-on displays, food & beverages, games, celtic music, magic, swordplay, ceili (old-fashion Irish dance), authentic costumes & decorations, plus much more.

The Royal Medieval Faire is one of the premier and longest running medieval festivals in Canada.

Every 3rd Saturday in September, many volunteers and organizers come together to create a magical, medieval day in 21st century Waterloo, Ontario. Over 5,000 patrons attend each year to participate with 150 actors, performers and volunteers to produce a spectacular family event.

If you want to sew, build, act, or do something else we haven't thought of, contact us and get medieval!
