The Roman Festival is in preparation! Visitors can look forward to two weekends of authentically re-enacted ancient Roman civil and military life in the Roman City Quarter and the Military City’s Amphitheatre on 15/16/22/23 June. Legionnaires, Roman citizens, craftsmen and riders, pugnacious barbarian tribes and gladiators will reunite up to 200 reenactors from all over Europe in the former metropolis of Upper Pannonia. Special tours centred around the life of Roman legionnaires for all age groups will be organized in the Museum Carnuntinum.

Highlights

After the huge success with the public, a scenic performance will be staged again in 2019 highlighting another aspect of Roman history.

As always, the Military City’s Amphitheatre is the stomping ground for fierce gladiator combats. Twice a day (1 and 3pm), members of the Familia Gladiatoria Carnuntina, now already boasting nearly 20 fighters, gather in the arena to challenge both each other’s prowess and battle skills.

In the Roman city quarter many activities like pageants and weddings, Roman cuisine, medicine, dances and fashion shows take place all day long. The roman soldiers are preparing themselves for the battle against the Daker.

For our young visitors there will be a special kids programme. Varied games and craft stations, a special children pompa and roman fairy tales are waiting to get explored. Also at the Museum Carnuntinum and the amphitheatre there will be special guided tours for kids.
