Program 2020

The Häme Medieval Festival takes over the nights of August 14th to 16th 2020!

The theme for festival in 2020 is Magic and Myths.

The people of the Middle Ages lived more magical life than us today. This time it’s not about knighthood romance or idolizing history; magic and spells were a big part of everyone’s life. Attempts were made to control the weather by spells, and the relics guaranteed the success of the war expedition. Christianity and traditional natural religion waged their battles for people’s souls.

Kireen Kypärän Taverna

The Tavern preparty Aug 12th and 13th and also the festival nights change at K-18 after 8pm. The festival organisation has considered this for a long time and found abnormal times to require slightly tighter limits.

Program:

Once again, medieval program fills the castle park. Medieval music is played by Pipers Of Transylvania, Spiritual Seasons, Carandus Horribilis, Tryzna, Greenrose Faire, Isara sekä Amanda Aalto & The Dark Forests.

Alasin ry, Iloinen Joutsen sekä Humalsalo enliven at the castle. Virna performs in Leivintupa on Saturday. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the programme at the castle has been reduced, but instead we offer quality enlivening. As a visitor, you can see how everyday life is going in the medieval castle.

Program in the area includes Tryzna carrot workshop, Sirkuskunnan Narrit, Finnhird with battle riding, Circus sisters Mimmi & Maisa, Bonemaiden telling stories and lovely animals of the Metsäntila farm.

Battles at event are seen from Vikings, Buhurt and Rohan Stables. The performances of the Rohan Stables take place on Friday night, Saturday at 2pm and in the evening, and on Sunday at 2pm.
