An Historical Journey!

The Sarasota Medieval Fair has been an annual tradition since 2005 and our amazing team is proud to live and work in our Southwest Florida community.  We are proud to be organizing such a fantastic family-centered event and we are honored by the huge amount of community support we have received in such a short time.

We hope you will join us in November at our new home, the Woods of Mallaranny, for a historical journey back in time!  We encourage all to interact with our cast of characters, ask questions,and participate in the grandeur of color, sound, taste, and festivities as you stroll through our medieval village!

So many of us on our team cherish the festival as more than just an event. The Sarasota Medieval Fair brings together local artisans, performers, and vendors, and serves as a fundraiser to multiple non-profit organizations in pursuit of their missions. It’s a creative forum for learning about the history of the Medieval era through a wide-range of family friendly activities, and an occasion through which our community has made lasting friendships and lifelong memories. A huge thank you to all our participants and guests who have supported us over the years to help us make our festival as wonderful as it is.

What is the Sarasota Medieval Fair?

The Sarasota Medieval Fair is an rustic cultural and ceremonial reenactment celebrating the history of our European ancestral forefathers including traditional farming technique demonstrations, baking/cooking demonstrations with local ingredients (cheese turning, smoked turkey legs, roasted nuts, roasted corn, produce, jams, cakes, etc), equestrian tournaments and performances, animal rides, blacksmithing demonstrations, educational history lessons, a petting zoo, children’s activities such as a hay maze, coloring/painting, storytelling, coat of arms/family heritage research activities, archery contests, and an assortment of local crafters who sell traditional/historic based items sourced locally.  There are also demonstrations for cotton and wool clothe weaving, basket weaving, pottery, metal/coin stamping, glass blowing, leather making, wood carving, art/sculpture making, traditional jewelry making, and candle making.

Our Journey to Find our New Home

For 18 years, our team searched for a location that supported the historic medieval atmosphere that is at the heart of our event.  We hoped to find a place that would inspire the imagination through majestic oak trees, lush meadows of grass, and winding creeks.  In 2021, we were excited to announce that the search was over, and our dream become a reality.  Our new home, the Woods of Mallaranny, offers 47-acres of stunning natural surroundings that brings the fair to life every year. Visit our Map & Directions page for directions.

Join the chronicles of our inaugural adventure at our new home, as we celebrate the wonder, the grandeur, the friendships, and the merriment of this year’s Sarasota Medieval Fair. Mark your calendars and stay up to date on our Facebook page as we announce all the exciting news surrounding this year’s festival.    Huzzah!

Be our Guest as we orchestrate this historical adventure back in time!
