Tabor medieval festival

 

Do you like a medieval atmosphere? Do you like listening to traditional music, do you like singing and partying under the open sky? So, do not miss another year of the Tábor Meetings festival, the 19th of which will be held from 10th till 12th September 2010. Tábor is a perfect location for period festivals.

The historic centre with several squares, crooked lanes and large green areas behind the town walls return back to the first half of the 15th century,to the time when the town was controlled by the Hussite captain Jan Žižka of Trocnov. And again, today, nearly six hundred years later, this famous warrior symbolically takes over the control of the town for the three days. He is accompanied by noisy drummers and a faithful crowd of Hussite warriors carrying lighted torches during his parade through the town.

After the festive opening, which includes a fireworks display, it is up to each visitor what they choose both to eat and do. Stalls offering medieval mead and bread with greaves are almost irresistible and can only be passed unnoticed by those heading for one of the cosy taverns offering medieval tidbits. As far as the programme is concerned, the variety is huge – parades in historical costumes, exhibitions, concerts of religious, medieval or contemporary music, open-air theatre performances, games and competitions for children and the list goes on and on.

You are not going to miss it, are you?
