In Days of Yore


Upper Canada Village hosted a Medieval Festival, June 9-11. Thousands of visitors, including nearly 5,800 school children on Monday, June 11, took in events ranging from noble knights jousting, hosted by Shane Adams of TV’s Full Metal Jousting, to demonstrations of armed combat. Visitors could see working Medieval weapons, watch the jongleurs and entertainers including Kobbler Jay, the Juggler, the mischievous Knot Brothers and Zoltan the Adequate, magician. Booths which featured Medieval wares, falconry shows, dancers, even a Royal Court made the experience educational, but also wildly exciting for everyone who attended. The ‘Dark Ages’ definitely lit up the Village last weekend.
