      Community Call Out!

      The Kildare Town Medieval Festival is a community event run entirely by a volunteer committee and of course, a huge team who come on board on the day of the festival.

      New help needed! This year we are asking local groups to “Adopt a Game”. This involves taking over a medieval game (we have plenty of ideas already) from the build to running it at the Festival on the day. We will be on hand to help with anything you need and there will be a donation for your Club or Group for taking part in the day. This idea is aimed at all community groups, sports clubs and schools in Kildare and surrounding areas. Please contact us on kildaretownmedievalfest@gmail.com to get involved!

      Volunteer

      We need volunteers to help with the running of the festival. To find out more and to sign up to volunteer simply get in touch with Emily via this online form, on kildaretownmedievalfest@gmail.com or 00 353 45 530 672.

      Stalls

      This year’s Festival promises to have a host of great stalls with something to suit all the visitors on the day. If you have an idea for a food or merchandise stall that has a medieval twist please let us know here.
