The town of Óbidos will travel back in time and recreate the customs and spirit of medieval Europe. Flowing vibrant banners and heraldic flags, wizards, jugglers, court jesters, wandering minstrels, musicians and mimes provide the vivacious merriment. Craft demonstrators and some 100 types of food, beverage and merchandise vendors take visitors to a time that has long passed.  It is open on Thursdays to Sundays between July 13 and August 6.

Partaking in a medieval supper is a festival highlight. These are held on Friday and Saturday evening. Entertainment activities take place in all three stages of the Old Arms Square and in random areas of the fair.  Visitants will also come upon two civil and military camp sites, replicas of assault weapons, surgical and domestic tools, and different animals, such as horses, ponies, donkeys, falcons and snakes. To fully enter into the festive spirit, visitors can hire a costume.
