The Grand Falconer’s Festival - Event in Cordes-sur-Ciel

The Grand Falconer’s Medieval Festival was created in 1971 to celebrate the 750th birthday of the town of Cordes-sur-Ciel. Since then, they have taken place year after year in July, bringing the Middle Ages to life in the town. For two days, a series of shows take place to the sound of horses’ hooves on the pavement, mixed in with the sound of tambourines, bagpipes, lutes, fiddles and oboes, against a backdrop of old buildings worn by the passing of time. Town residents, fire-eaters, troubadours, jugglers, falconers, musicians, knights, fair ladies and peasants wear medieval costumes. The Grand Falconer’s Medieval Festival includes camps, torch-lit processions by day and night, playlets, concerts, balls, fire shows, and children’s games and activities.
