Event Details


Saturday and Sunday, January 26-27 and February 2-3, 2013
from 10am to 6pm

 Alachua County Fairgrounds in Gainesville, FL

The Alachua County Fairgrounds is transformed into a bustling medieval marketplace for the27th Annual Hoggetowne Medieval Faire. Come be swept away by medieval magic as troupes of actors, street performers and musicians journey back to the days of yore on January 26–27 & February 2–3, 2013. Revel in the sights and sounds of one of North Central Florida’s premier events. 

Join the crowd and cheer for your favorite contender as mounted knight’s joust in full plate armor on the tournament field. Applaud street performers who dance, juggle and jest for your amusement. Listen to minstrels playing period music and enjoy continuous live entertainment on eight stages. Browse through the bustling medieval marketplace for that perfect gift or trinket.

Watch and enjoy as King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table battle the forces of evil as pieces on a living chessboard, or test your own skills in games of chance, strength and skill. Watch and learn as more than 160 artisans demonstrate their skills in blacksmithing, weaving, leatherworking, woodcarving, pottery and much more. Indulge in a feast fit for a king in our food court, where you can find sweet potato fries, bloomin onions and our famous giant turkey legs.


The Faire is the perfect place to bring even the youngest members of the kingdom. Children delight in visiting the royal pavilion, where they will become lords and ladies of the court of Hoggetowne. Indulge not only your children, but also yourself with rides on a camel, pony or even an elephant. Human-powered push rides further add to the authentic medieval fun.
