Castle Fraser Jousting Tournament

Castle Fraser Jousting Tournament used to be an annual event, but no longer takes place every year.

The Tournament features  re-enactments of  battles and jousting tournaments. This is taken very seriously indeed by the participants who ensure their equipment is authentic.  The re-enactors are actually fighting for points in their own “league”.   There is great attention to detail during the Tournament.  Many combatants manufacture their own equipment.

Castle Fraser Steam Fair is another event at the Castle earlier in the year.
