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 Barony of Nordskogen 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, music, armorers, jugglers, period games, cooking, glass beads, and other arts and skills. Children large and small can try their hand at firing a crossbow or send a ball flying using a trebuchet.
Admission to this program is free, with a $5 per person suggested donation. 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 will also be available at the Lexington-Diffley Athletic fields. Banners and signs will be posted. Walking from the athletic fields lot 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.
