The sixteenth edition of the SILVES MEDIEVAL FAIR opens from August 9th to 18th in the historic center of Silves, the former capital of the Algarve, presenting 10 days of historical recreations and re-enactments of the medieval period. This awesome annual event is one of the biggest and the best summer festivals in the Algarve!

At this 2019 edition we revisit Xilb and the Vikings in the year 844, when an ambassador from Silves left by boat to the Majus (Vikings) territory. For 10 days, this colourful and vibrant festival centred around the spectacular Moorish Silves Castle takes over this beautiful historic town, attracting visitors from all over the world, giving them opportunity to dress in Medieval costumes, eat and drink Medieval food and beverages, cheer at jousting knights, dance to Medieval music and generally enjoy the magical atmosphere. This unique environment and setting gives the fair a true 12th century feel.

 

The fun starts every day from 6pm with a daily procession through the streets, followed by Muslim-Vikings war games, an animated show of dance, music and fire at the castle plus re-creations of various Viking rituals - wedding ritual, human sacrifice to the gods, blood eagle ritual, and funeral ritual. The cobbled streets are lined with market stalls selling authentic representations of medieval produce and wares.
There will also be special entertainment from 7pm on the first and last nights of the event from 7pm, involving Algazali's departure to and return from the land of the Normans.

 

A truly family orientated event, this is THE great Algarve summer party!
