About Us

Join us on April 13-14, 2018, for the 4rd annual Medieval California Festival at the Kern County Museum Grounds. From a very early age, our founder has always enjoyed the Medieval ways of life. The idea of beginning a business that featured this time period and its culture led to the creation of this magnificent festival for others to enjoy.

At our festival, our main goal is providing a family-friendly, authentic experience of the medieval times. We are proud to offer a variety of features such as live performances, activities, and dining, which all represent the time period.

This family outing will be one that your children will want to make a yearly tradition and will remember participating in for years to come. Come out and experience an authentic medieval festival with action-packed battles and fun for the whole family.


Over 100 Medieval warriors doing sword battles and live demonstrations. Three Medieval bands performing on stage.
