The Caboolture region will once again travel back in time to the Middle Ages this July with the return of the Abbey Medieval Festival.

Held over two big days on July 8 and 9, the Abbey Medieval Festival is the largest event hosted by the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology.

The two-day spectacular brings history to life with authentic re-enactments, crafts, music, food and more – perfect for history lovers and those wishing to experience what life was like many centuries ago.

One of the highlights of the festival is the Moreton Bay Medieval Joust Championship, which is sponsored by the Moreton Bay Regional Council.

The event is run by professional jouster Luke Binks, who has competed all over the world including Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Russia and America.

“The Abbey Medieval Festival is one of my favourite events of the year. A lot of hard work goes into the jousting tournament, but it’s worth it when you have 5000 people cheering and screaming as you do something that is pretty epic and unusual,” Luke says.

“Last year the crowds were really electric, so we hope this year the crowds will be bigger, better, brighter and of course louder.”

All the fun will be held at ‘Abbeystowe’ - an open field near the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, located a 1-63 The Abbey Place, Caboolture.

The Abbey Medieval Festival is a major fundraiser for the Abbey Museum of Art and Archeology, and is sponsored by Moreton Bay Regional Council, Tourism and Events Queensland, Visit Moreton Bay Region, North Harbour and ERMS Group.
