Medieval Arts Festival
Noon to 5 p.m.

Experience the Middle Ages as history comes to life! Fascinating exhibits of medieval arts and sciences will be on display. Live demonstrations of ancient weaponry will be conducted by costumed members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and the skills of the Middle Ages. Have fun and get educated at the same time. A hands on experience for the whole family, as they discover another time, together. Fun photo opportunities will be available.
At 3 p.m. storyteller Dorayne Breedlove will be returning with her Knights, Kings, Queens and Dragons Storytime, where the kids get to act out and participate in the story. Books may be purchased by authors Katy Beebe, professor of Medieval History at UTA, and Troy Depue, of the Medieval Facts Examiner.
Festivities will be held at the Levitt Pavilion and will include stories, games and activities for children. Those in attendance at the Festival will be eligible for door prizes donated by Theatre Arlington, Scarborough Renaissance Festival and Medieval Times. This 14th annual event is entertaining and educational for the whole family. Come join us and celebrate autumn in medieval style! Admission is free!
