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 SCA members in period dress present educational demonstrations and activities. Look forward to rapier and armored combat, music, weaponry and armorers, storytelling bards, jugglers, cooking, period games, heraldry, glass bead making, and other arts and skills. We'll also have a lace making demonstration, spinning, fire starting, crossbows, a book display, and childrens coloring activity. Coin making and pewter casting demos have been added this year.
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.
