Blacktown Festival’s Medieval Fayre, Very Memorable

medieval faireThe 2013 Blacktown City Festival is over for another year – after eight successful days of performances, events, parades and workshops.

The Blacktown City Festival opened on Saturday, 18 May with My Lords and Ladies Medieval Fayre, which saw Nurragingy Reserve transformed into a world of dark, medieval magic.

“The community spirit of Blacktown City definitely came alive during Festival week. It is great to see how this event continues to evolve – particularly The Medieval Fayre, which is quickly becoming the main attraction of the Blacktown City Festival”, Mayor of Blacktown City, Councillor Len Robinson said.

The Medieval Fayre gave locals and visitors alike the opportunity to be a part of living history at its finest, with jousting, combat displays and colourful pavilions.

The jam-packed Festival week also included the Reconciliation Walk and Gathering, Environmental Expo, Art Exhibitions, Sydney Motorsport Park Community Fun Runs and Walks, two kids concerts – Fireman Sam and Angelina Ballerina; environmental workshops and tours; a Zumba Fitness Party, a Hoyts Cinema pre-screening; and Bush Poets at the Royal Cricketers Arms Hotel and Alroy Tavern.

The Blacktown City Festival concluded on Saturday, 25 May with the Streets Alive and Parade Day, which featured a performance from 2012 X-Factor finalists – The Collective.

The Blacktown CBD was transformed into a display of colour and excitement, with over 250 street stalls, gourmet food stalls, exciting displays and attractions. Thousands of people gathered to witness the exciting array of music and culture to conclude the 2013 Blacktown City Festival.

“I extend my thanks to the community groups, performers, volunteers and sponsors who have helped make Festival week a success also to the staff of Blacktown City Council, who’s hard work and dedication brought the 2013 Blacktown City Festival”, Mayor Robinson continued.


The Blacktown City Festival was proudly supported by Chanel Nine, Sydney Motorsport Park and Hoyts Blacktown.
