UCV brings Middle Ages to Life


 Upper Canada Village turned the clock back nearly eight centuries when it presented the Medieval Festival, June 6-8, 2015. Knights in shining armour and ladies fair, archers and soldiers, serfs and entertainers, even the King and Queen, were all on the Village grounds re-creating a long gone world. Hundreds of visitors took advantage of the opportunity to see how people in Europe once made their way in a sometimes hard world. Jousts between brave knights, sword fights, archery, demonstrations of siege equipment, music, magic and dance were all part of the three day event, and drew plenty of spectators. School children also enjoyed living history lessons, and occasionally, found themselves locked in the stocks for falling foul of the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Medieval Festival has become a popular annual event at the Village.
