Medieval Mdina on the first weekend of May

On Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May 2018, Mdina shall once again come to life for the Mdina Medieval Festival organised by the Mdina Local Council, which this year is celebrating its 10th year anniversary.

During this two day event visitors shall be entertained with re-enactments by foreign and local groups, Medieval Music, Sbandieratori, Illusionist, Jester, Falconry and birds of prey, Lectures, Concerts, Medieval Market, Medieval Kitchen and Children’s activities.

During the Festival the participants will perform in various corners and squares of Mdina which include battles, skirmishes, re-enactments of scenes from the Medieval Period, Sword Fighting, Archery, Medieval Tavern, Magic Shows, Live Music, Birds of Prey flights, Parades, Flag Throwing shows, and spontaneous re-enactments. One can also attend Lectures with various Medieval Themes or join in a tour around the City guided by a Tour Guide. During the festival all the Tourist Attractions extend their opening hours and offer special reduced prices.

The Medieval Festival serves as an educational exercise allowing both children and adults to get immersed in Mdina’s history and Medieval period. The festival additionally serves as an exchange opportunity for local talents and foreign groups, disseminating the cultural heritage of the Medieval Times.

We look forward to welcoming you to this years’ festival, stepping back in time and experience a blend of history and fun for the whole family.
