The International Knight Festival ‘Tournament of St. George’ will be held in Moscow!

The International Knight Festival ‘Tournament of St. George’ will be held in Moscow at the Kolomenskoye museum-reserve from April 29 until May 1.

Nine most famous knights from Russia, Norway and France will compete at the 3rd St. George International Tournament.

Everything that happens at the tiltyard is for real: there are no staged fights and stunt tricks – there is only full contact and uncompromising battle for the champion title of St. George Tournament. Participants of the festival will joust with solid wood spears, fight in team fisticuffs and one-on-ones with two-handed melees.

St. George Tournament is not just a competition, but a colourful show as well. Visitors of the festival will see its opening ceremony and awarding ceremony upon completion of the third day of fighting, an autograph session with knights,performances of a historical theatre, magic hunting and much more.

Here you will find an infrastructure filled with the spirit of the Middle Ages, a historical fair, a thematic food court, and a playground for children and their parents. Visiting the tournament is like making a trip to Europe of the 15th century and seeing one of its most vivid displays.
