Twenty-four 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!

The Royal Medieval Faire will again this year take place ONLY ONLINE on Saturday, September 18, 2021 - Check out our website or facebook page for details. The faire is scheduled to return to the park for the following year on Saturday, September 17th, 2022 for our 25th annivesary!

The events this year will be free of charge (similar to 2020), however as always, donations to support this years fixed expenses (the storage of festival equipment and administrative costs) and our future return to the park would be greatly appreciated.

This event is suitable for all ages and has something to offer everyone. We hope to capture some of the magic of the festival in online activities throughout the day, to keep some of the spirit of the Royal Medieval Faire alive for 2021. It is a great day for the entire family and those interested in history and the arts.

Check out last year's online faire day that celebrated medieval themes, fun and learning!!
