Event Details

Prepare for another amazing Medieval Fair! The annual Medieval Fair in the historical town of Silves is one of the biggest and the best summer festivals in the Algarve. This colourful and vibrant festival centres around Silves Castle and takes over most of the town. It attracts visitors from all over the world who come to dress in Medieval costumes, eat and drink Medieval fare, cheer on jousting knights, dance to Medieval music and enjoy the electric atmosphere. A great event for all the family - not to be missed!

The Silves Medieval Fair is very popular so expect it to be quite busy. It gets particularly busy from 9pm onwards. Parking is on the outer streets of the town. Silves is a hilly town and the cobbled streets can be tricky underfoot – runners or low sandals are the best footwear.
