Jousting!

Take a step back in time into the 16th century at this 30-acre recreated Elizabethan village offering “400 years of fun in a single day.” There are costumed characters; jousting tournaments; jugglers; swordsmen; pirates; peasants; busty ladies of all stripes; authentic artisans laboring over metal and glass; and enough turkey legs to cancel Thanksgiving. Browse the Medieval market, try your hand at archery, indulge in Renaissance stew, wine and ales or come during a themed weekend for some bonus fun.

Trick or Treat Weekend takes place Oct. 27-28 — the final weekend of the 2018 festival — and kids under 12 get in free. There will also be costume contests and pumpkin decorating.

10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 28. $23 adults; $21 seniors/military/police/fire/EMS; $9.50 children ages 5-12; $60 adult season pass.
