Moor up your yacht at Ibiza Magna marina for a grand entrance to The Medieval Fair in Dalt Vila, Ibiza
The streets of the castle of Dalt Vila, a recognised Unesco World Heritage Site, play homage to the sights and sounds of a distant past, paying tribute to the multi-cultural legacy left on the island throughout the centuries by the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Christians.
The 3-day Medieval Fair which will attracts over 50.000 visitors, opens on Thursday 7th May at 18.00 with a Welcome Parade. Throughout Friday 8, Saturday 9, and Sunday 10 May from 10am until midnight, there are more than 150 stalls dotted around the streets within the Dalt Vila selling local produce, crafts, food and accessories as well as hand-crafted products and traditional medieval fare such as: candied fruits, cheese, exotic spices, honey, jewellery, leather goods, perfume, sausages, soaps and wine, to name but a very few…
The streets will be decorated with over 500 flags, awnings, banners and hand painted murals and you can watch ’medieval’ craftsmen performing their ‘thing’ or simply enjoy the traditional entertainment and performances. These include medieval magic shows, acrobats, artists, belly dancers, medieval concerts with old instruments, clowns, crossbowmen, the odd dragon, some falconry, flag bearers, jugglers, musicians, puppeteers, snake charmers, witches and wizards, as well as some re-enactments of historical battles and knight jousting tournaments. There is also a dedicated children’s area with special activities designed especially for little ones, including a pirate ship, storytelling and puppetry, along with activities in the Plaza del Parque.
