Need a break from the 21st century? Come to the annual Medieval Fair! Discover what it was like to live during the Middle Ages in the wooded setting of Caponi Art Park. Members of the Society for Creative Anachronism’s Minnesota chapter bring you the Middle Ages as they should have been: without the strife and pestilence!
Authentic pavilions will be on display in a Medieval Village as artisans in period dress present educational demonstrations and interactive activities. Look forward to rapier and armored combat, coin making, armorers, jugglers, period games, cooking, glass beads, and other arts and skills. Children large and small can try their hand at firing a crossbow. After visiting the Medieval Fair, be sure to tour the rest of the park including the Sculpture Garden and Theater in the Woods.
Admission is $5 per person. Event will go on rain or shine, except in the case of severe weather or heavy rain.
Location: The Medieval Fair takes place in the Exhibition area. In addition to our main parking lot, parking is available at the Lexington-Diffley Athletic fields. Banners and signs will be posted. The trail from the athletic fields is more scenic and includes unpaved, hilly trails.
Food: Potter’s Pasties food truck will sell a variety of English pasties, pies, sides and refreshments during the Medieval Fair. See the menu on their website. Rita’s Ice will be serving Italian ice, custard and other delicious frozen treats.
