Celebrations and Festivities

After the huge success of the 2018 edition on the theme “Humans and Beasts” we invite you to the next
festival on 15 and 16 June 2019! We will celebrate the 36th medieval festival with the promising theme
“Celebrations and Festivities”!
Discover minstrels, craftsmen, entertainers, games, jousts, legends, and street theatre…

Novelty in 2019: the festival begins on Friday night downtown in the town center! Meeting at the place Saint-Ayoul for a huge free concert of Luc Arbogast. A talented minstrel, who as participated at a TV talent show “The Voice France” in 2013. We are honoured to receive this artist in Provins, for an outstanding opening evening!

To enjoy properly this 36th medieval festival, we can count on the presence of Giants Baldwin IV and Alice of Namur from Ath (in Belgium). Ath is known as the City of Giants after the Ducasse festivities, originated from the Middle Ages (15th centuries).
