This increasingly popular Renaissance event comes complete with “villains” like local councillors begin trapped in stocks, to a magical dragon, as well as Medieval feasts, a creative arts competition for children 16 years old and younger, and an increasingly popular Medieval market selling everything from armor and leather goods, home baked breads and herbs, to face painting and jewelry.
