logo med
On the occasion of the Pratz Medieval Festival on 6 and 7 August 2016, Praz-sur-Arly becomes a real medieval village where knights, minstrels and other troubadours offer amazing shows and entertainment for all the family. And if you really want to get into the spirit of it, you can rent medieval costumes!


What’s new this year:


PicMonkey Collage

Historical reconstruction: Savoyard mountain life in the Middle Ages

Reconstruction of a house, work in the fields, farm animals, presentation of the food: milk and cheese, woodworking: basins, roofs, pit sawyer, plants and medicinal techniques, religion and superstition, animal trials, relationship with the feudal lord.

Demonstration of the profession of iron/bell-founder with Eric Klee

Demonstration all day long of the profession of bell-founder in the Middle Ages with the manufacture of either a bell or object related to the Middle Ages (bucket, figurines, etc.). Explanations about the profession of an iron/bell-founder through the ages (from antiquity to today); decoration and tools from the Middle Ages. Free workshops for children.






Medieval tales with Sire Pascal of the Pestaculaire Company

Half storyteller, half actor, Sire Pascal moves from one character to another while telling the story. Example of a tale: The dragon of the Fire Island or how Enguerrand the Brave became Enguerrand the First Knight, powerful and full of self-confidence. The young Enguerrand de Hautecimeveut conquers the title of First Knight of the Realm by bringing back to the King the head of the dragon that was terrorizing the inhabitants of the Fire Island. During his quest, he learns that it is not always easy to distinguish between friend and foe, and that sometimes one has to choose between one’s ambitions and one’s knightly values.

Cooperage with the “Art and Tonneaux” Company

In a medieval stall, Cyrilles Dumoutier reconstructs a workshop for the manufacture of barrels. You will discover all the stages and secrets of the manufacture of barrels, buckets, etc. This interactive and educational activity allows everyone to try out their skill at assembling a barrel and delicately placing the bases.

Demonstration of the profession of surgeon with Arthus

The desire to cure your loved ones is overwhelming… Medical schools are a long way away and inaccessible. The solution? Become a surgeon!
