The Armidale Easter Gathering is a four day event in Australia run over Easter every even-numbered year.

It is hosted by the New England Medieval Arts Society and is one of the highlights of the re-enactment calendar. It is regarded by most Dark Age re-enactment groups as THE event of the calendar.

The event is generally closed to the public and held in a State-run pine forest. It features the usual fare found at many events, but differs in the addition of the purpose-built longhouse (which functions as a tavern, feasting hall and sleeping area) and campsites in a setting that features less Australian flora on obvious show.

The event is not limited to Australian re-enactors.

Its timing conflicts with the SCA's Rowany Festival.
