Do you love to dress up? Why not join the many visitors who enjoy immersing themselves in the medieval experience at the Abbey Medieval Festival by wearing a costume.

You can become part of our Festival’s story by wearing historically-appropriate medieval garb, come in cosplay, or your own fantastical creation.

If you want to include a sword or other weapon as part of your costume, you will need to apply for a weapons permit prior to attending. The weapons permit application form can be completed online, or by reporting to the Sheriff’s office at the event.

Here are some suppliers for medieval-inspired garments and costumes to help get you started.
