About Us

The Balingup Medieval Carnivale is held in the magical town of Balingup over the 4th weekend of August. The carnivale has evolved from a half day event outside the town hall in 1996 to a weekend full of medieval colour and fun. The Balingup Medieval Carnivale is now the largest and oldest medieval carnivale in Western Australia.
Currently the committee is working together to bring the best that can be given in this climate of Covid regulations.
People come from far and wide to step back in time and experience everything medieval. It's very much a family affair with plenty to do whether you're young or old. The Burning of the Dragon on the Saturday night is not to be missed, driven on by the primal beat of the Drummers, the heartbeat of the carnivale.
 
As a 'Not-For-Profit' organisation the BMC fund the event mainly through gate takings and stall holder payments, and as the constitution states - any surpluses made will be used to benefit the Balingup community. The BMC committee is always advised after the November AGM.

Medieval Feast

Friday Night
Balingup Town Hall, 6pm until late.
 
WATCH THIS SPACE

We are working on bringing back the feast this year 
  if the King of these lands will allow it

It has long been part of the folklore of the carnivale that
we have an outrageously gluttonous feast the night
before the carnivale begins, involving storytellers,
acrobats, musicians and more. Join the High Court of
Balingup in grand merriment, an evening not to be
missed!

To have the most fun on the night we encourage you
to dress in medieval attire. Checkout our costume hire.

 
 

Costume Hire

Balingup Medieval Carnivale has it's own independent

costume hire right on site!  We have over 300 fantastic

costumes available to hire at amazing rates. The hire

fee, plus the deposit, covers the whole weekend with

proceeds going towards the running of the Carnivale.

Most visitors dress up for the event, 

even the Entertainers and Stallholders! So why don’t

you be part of the medieval adventure and join in the

fun?  We have children and adult costumes available in

a wide range  from Lords and Ladies, to Sorcerers,

Jesters, Monks and of course gallant Knights.
