A Family-Friendly Medieval Experience

Come one, come all to the Medieval California Festival in Bakersfield, California. At our festival, you feel as though you have stepped back into medieval times. Our staff is dressed in medieval attire from head to toe as gladiators, merchants, and peasants. This educational and safe environment is a great place for a day of fun-filled family entertainment.

Immerse Yourself In the Culture

No matter what your age, dressing up is always a fun experience. Your participation in dressing up in medieval-style clothing and accessories is highly encouraged by our team. If you do not have the resources to dress up beforehand, our shops offer items such as clothing, swords, and shields.

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

Our variety of vendors offer festivalgoers a large selection of family-friendly activities, including games, crafts, and jewelry and accessory shops, as well as various dining options. Sit back and enjoy a filling meal while listening to live music and action-packed performances by our team.

It would not be a medieval festival without ale for you to enjoy. Step aside to our full bar and beer garden under a nice shaded area. From rich, flavorful beers to cool, delicious blended drinks, you will feel like you have truly embarked on a journey back in time.
