In my relenting quest to explore Los Angeles, I often venture out of my local neighborhood and into this vast city in search of new and exciting adventures. This time around I had the opportunity to escape the normal scene and taking a step back in time to the Middle Ages. It’s not often such an opportunity presents itself, so my friends and I took full advantage, as is evident in our Royal Family portrait taken at Medieval Times — a truly grand and spectacular event we all enjoyed and so will you!

Upon entering the life-sized castle we were greeted by medieval stewards and assigned to a team via color-coded crowns — we were on the red team and proud of it! There is a large inner courtyard where the over 1,000 guests mix and mingle awaiting their supper and tournament. While inside, we enjoyed adult beverages and strolled through the castle shops and visited the horses.

At the beckoning call of a knight in shining armor, we were all summoned, given instructions, and shown to our designated sections: red crowns in the red section, blue crowns in the blue section, yellow crowns in the yellow section, and so forth. The enormous arena rivals any and resembles that of a Medieval Colosseum.  We sat anxiously waiting for the ‘Gladiator meets Beowulf’ showdown while the crowd settled.

Soon after, each team took their place, and the show began! Lights, sound, and smoke-filled the arena as each team cheered, laughed, and scoped out the competition. Trumpets blared as the King and Queen rode in to take their place and begin the opening ceremonies.

Each team was assigned a Knight according to their color and the entire arena filled with troops marching to a medieval beat.

Before the show, there was an equestrian demonstration with a beautiful white horse that came up right in front of us.

Then the moment we had all been waiting for had arrived! Tensions and spirits were high as each Knight challenged another in a jousting tournament. One by one they joust and one by one they fall, then a ground battle begins and each Knight chooses a weapon to fight with.

After the tournament and finishing our dessert, we cheered for our Knight one last time as we made our way out of the castle. We had a great time and I recommend the event highly. Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament is a family dinner theater featuring staged medieval-style games, sword-fighting, and jousting performed by a cast of 75 actors and 20 horses in a replica 11th-century castle.

You won’t find a better family dining and entertainment bargain than at the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival. Home of the world’s largest lobster festival and 2009 winner of the Guinness World Record for the Most Seafood Served at an Outdoor Event. They feature fresh discount Maine lobster meals flown in fresh daily and cooked on the spot, and plenty of free entertainment. Lobster lovers enjoy a scenic outdoor park along LA’s historic waterfront, and shops at Ports O’ Call in San Pedro. After feasting on their world-famous discount Maine lobster meals, you can enjoy dancing, street performers, a pirate camp, tall ships, shopping for arts and crafts, and musical performances by some of today’s best up-and-coming acts. As they say at the Lobster Festival, “Come for the feast, stay for the fun.”

Lobster Meals

Every year they fly in fresh over 16 tons of live Maine lobsters direct from the clean, cold waters of the Gulf of Maine for the delicious lobster meal. They cut out the middleman and buy direct from the largest supplier in the world – The William Atwood Lobster Company. That’s why you don’t need to pay in advance at the festival. In over a decade they’ve never run out of lobsters because they ship them in daily during the festival.

They will also have on hand a special limited supply of Monster Lobsters – Godzilla on a plate, 3-4 pound monsters cooked to perfection.

There’s lots to eat at the festival in addition to lobster. The menu varies from year to year depending on the vendors, but they usually have many other seafood items including steamed and fried clams, fried shrimp, shrimp cocktail, roast corn, funnel cakes, and all varieties of traditional fair food, all done in the California way.

If seafood isn’t your thing, then you can dine on the finest ribs or tri-tip, chicken, Jamaican, Chinese, Thai, and other international foods and desserts. Beer and wine are also available. There is also consideration for those with a vegetarian diet. If you dine at the Ports O’ Call restaurant adjacent to the festival entrance and order their world-famous 50 item salad bar you get free admission to the festival. Just take your receipt to the front desk.

Entertainment

This be the Capn’ and crew of the Red Swan on land for a spell with their amazing crew of stilt walkin’, glass eatin’ , fire breathin’ crew. Be prepared to be amazed and delighted day and night with Pirate music, dancin’, and tours of their beached ship. All new this year, bigger, better and more exciting!

There will be a live music throughout the event. Click here for a full schedule.

In addition to the excellent food choices available there are many vendors exhibiting arts, crafts, and other goods that can only be found at the Festival. Several handmade, one-of-a-kind items can be found at the various booths. Also showcased at the Festival is entertainment and activities for all ages. The entertainment changes every year, but it is always free. There may be a magician performing in the eating tent, a face painter in the kids’ area while the best up and coming rocks groups perform on the Main Stage in the park area.

Click here for tickets. Print, clip, and present at the gate  for your discount admission.

Inside the stone walls of the 11th century-style castle, Medieval Spain comes to life as six knights, donning authentic armor, clash in a jousting tournament for the title of King’s Champion. Medieval Times is the ultimate family or group dinner show!

Surrender to an age of bravery and honor and witness epic battles of steel and steed during their All-New Show. From ringside seats, discover a feast of the eyes and appetite with more action, more fun and more excitement than ever before.

Not far from Hollywood is the Buena Park Castle. The fortress-like, 1,116 seat Spanish palace is right at home with the red tile roofs, palm trees, and blazing sun of Southern California. And its location couldn’t be better. The castle is only minutes from Disneyland, near the Santa Ana and Artesia freeways. Most of all, we’re proud to say that our show’s stunning battle sequences and authentic Medieval tournament offer one thing Hollywood doesn’t: the thrill of live action.

As you thrill to a rousing live jousting tournament, marvel at awe-inspiring horsemanship and falconry, Medieval Times serves a four-course meal fit for royalty.

The menu includes:

  • Tomato Bisque
  • Focaccia Bread with Olive Oil and Seasoning
  • Oven-Roasted Chicken
  • Larger BBQ Spare Rib
  • Herb-Basted Potato Split into Two Quarters
  • Braided Apple Strudel
  • Larger Beverage Servings and Coffee

Some of the most talented Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament cast members are their horses. The magnificent stallions are born performers. Nearly all of their more than 400 horses are raised at Medieval Times’ Chapel Creek Ranch in Sanger, Texas.

Training begins early. As weanlings, Medieval Times horses are introduced to lead ropes and halters. Saddles come at age 2. Long reins and simple exercises such as lunging follow. At age 3, the horses move to their new homes – one of their nine North American Castles - where they learn advanced-level dressage from a master horse trainer. Then life as a pampered performer begins.

After a few years in the spotlight, the Medieval Times horses move back to the Chapel Creek Ranch. In the serene setting, we make sure our horses live out their lives in royal treatment.
