This year «Times & Epochs» change the format. Now this is not just an event in Kolomenskoye dedicated to a particular period. The festival becomes a grand convent of 5,000 reenactors from around the world who will represent during 12 days the epochs from the antiquity to the XX century. «Times & Epochs. The Gathering» is a real exhibition of achievements in the reenactment domain, a platform for sharing ideas and experience.
The new format
All the best from the reenactment world
In the framework of the «Times & Epochs», 5 festivals will be held in various parts of the capital. 26 topical venues will work around Moscow. Camps of reenactors are expected in parks, central streets and squares. The idea of the festival is to gather all the best from the world reenactment in the capital of Russia.
Various epochs will intertwine in the streets and in the parks into a single historical performance. Muscovites and tourists will walk around the center from one epoch to another, go to parks to watch a battle of the XVII century, a combat between Roman legions and barbarians, or a camp of the Russian Imperial army.
From the XX century to dyakovites
The festival will start on June 1 at Rizhsky railway station — with the arrival of a retro train. There will be refined aristocrats, brilliant ladies, imperial officers from the beginning of the XX century. The culmination will be the Moscow battle of 1612 at the «Kolomenskoye» park. It will be the most large-scale event of the «Times & Epochs». The festival will end on June 12 by a great feast at the ancient Dyakovo hillfort.
