Bayeux - From 5th to 8th July 2018

Bayeux Medieval Festival 2018

Come to the feast an entire weekend in Bayeux !

Each year, Bayeux offers its heritage as the showcase for the Medieval festival! From July 5th to 8th, Bayeux will once again don its fineries and take visitors back to the Middle Ages…



As usual, the popular medieval market will take place around the cathedral. Some 150 exhibitors from France and Europe will exhibit their items of arts and crafts with jewellery, dolls, sculptures, and pottery.

Stonemasons will set up a workshop.  There will also be many street performers and plenty of taverns for the amusement of visitors! The medieval mass will be celebrated in the medieval fashion in the Cathedral, emptied of its chairs for the occasion, on the Sunday morning at 10 am.


As for the great parade, still very much awaited, it will gather more than 500 participants! The animals will obviously be part of it!


Medieval book fair – Each year the medieval book fair is held on the Place de Gaulle. This is the occasion for readers to meet the authors of  books set in the Middle Ages.


For children, medieval games and animations will be proposed in the courtyard of the Deanery!
