This May 6th and 7th, the Medieval Roast Festival (Festival Medieval del Asado) will take place in Ajusco. This event will be full of magic and fantasy bringing together the best grilling from our country and the world, while offering fun attractions and activities that will take you on a journey through history.
From the grill
For this edition, the festival will feature various vendors with their juicy, exquisite cuts of meat such as Bariloche, serving up Argentine choripanes and premium German sausages made with wines. Badillo Grill will offer dishes like Black Angus rib eye aguachile, smoked pork rib with a coffee crust, and family barbecue, while Kloster comes with its roasted machitos, pork belly, and picaña tacos, to name just a few.
To really feel like you have entered into the Middle Ages, there will be traditional games and activities like archery and ax throwing, bagpipe music, dance, fantasy and fire shows, battles between knights and vikings, and a falconry exhibition.
For the true fans of the Middle Ages, don’t miss the costume contests for adults, children, and even pets, as well as the tournament to find the best barbecue in the region, the royal cook, and the greedy king.
In addition to the thematic workshops, there will be a nighttime tour full of stories and legends along the mystical path. There will also be an area for camping for an experience communing with nature warmed by the campfire.
