World Jousting Championship

Come one, come all – to Lardner Park on 1-2 June 2019

2019 brings the best jousting knights in the world today to Lardner Park for the World Jousting Championships.  Competitors from as far away as France, Germany, England, Norway, Canada and Russia, plus a strong team from Australia including current WJC champion Phil Leitch.  The World Jousting Championship is the culmination of a circuit including the European, Russian and Australian Qualifiers.

Brutal and spectacular, come and see shining steel armour and real knights go at it with thundering hooves, steel armour and splintering lances in this ‘original extreme sport’.  This family-friendly event will transport you back to the Middle Ages as you wander through the historical village.  Other amazing attractions include a trebuchet (giant medieval catapult), birds of prey display, archery, kid’s knight school and much more.

Why not 100% immerse yourself and stay in our “glamping” accommodation village.  With several options available you will be able to step back in time with the jousting and then step out of that world and into a cosy bell tent with lots of special touches to enhance your stay.  For more information please download the options below.
