The Traquair Medieval Fayre is Scotland’s only authentic Medieval Fayre and is an unbeatable mix of medieval entertainment from jousting to jesters in the grounds of Scotland’s Oldest Inhabited House.

This two-day event continues to grow with re-enactors from as far afield as France and Poland joining entertainers and traditional traders from all over the UK to re-create life in medieval times.

This is truly a family event with Jousting down the great grassed avenue of Traquair as well as a cannon firing display to start the event, archery, military drills and the occasional skirmish throughout the weekend.

Walk into the old walled garden and be transported back 500 years with medieval traders, wandering minstrels, jester shows, a gruesome exhibit of an executioners’ instruments of torture and even a chance to put yourself in the stocks if you dare!

You can learn some green working skills, try your hand at willow weaving or have-a- go at Longbow archery. There are many other demonstrations of ancient crafts such as a medieval forge, wool carding and dyeing, chain mail making and tapestry. For children there is a wonderful sword and shield making workshop.

Take a walk in the woods with Mistress Quill to hear some stories from ancient times or take a look at some wonderful birds of prey and see falconry displays throughout the day.

Delicious food will be on offer with a hog roast, wood fired pizza from our own oven, buffalo burgers and a scrumptious Fayre Ale brewed on the premises in our 300 year old brew house.
