The Medieval Rose Festival of Rhodes is a captivating event that transports visitors back in time to the enchanting era of knights, fair maidens, and grand banquets. Set within the picturesque and historically rich island of Rhodes, Greece, this festival is a celebration of medieval culture and traditions, held within the ancient walls of one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe.

As you step through the stone gates into the old town, you’re greeted by a vibrant spectacle reminiscent of the Middle Ages. The air fills with the sound of traditional music, the clashing of swords, and the laughter of townsfolk, creating an immersive experience that feels like you’ve walked into another era. The streets and squares come alive with colourful processions, jousting knights, street performers, and medieval markets, offering an array of crafts, costumes, and culinary delights that evoke the period’s spirit.

The festival is not merely a spectator event; it invites participation. Visitors can dress in period costumes, engage in workshops on medieval arts and crafts, or learn ancient dances, making the experience educational and entertaining. At night, the town glows under torchlight, setting the scene for theatrical performances, storytelling sessions and grand feasts.

The Medieval Rose Festival is a tribute to the island’s storied past, offering a unique blend of historical re-enactment and festive celebration. It’s an opportunity for families, history enthusiasts, and curious travellers to step back in time and explore the living history of the medieval world.
