Days Of Knights

October 6 - October 8

What is Days of Knights?

Days of Knights is a public educational event that strives to bring you a historically accurate re-creation of several time periods from the era known as the Middle Ages.  Visitors will be able to walk through a timeline encampment featuring living history enthusiasts re-creating the Norman invaders of Britain in 1066, crusaders from the 1200s, archers and knights from the 100 Years War, and many others.

Who is Days of Knights for?

Days of Knights is open to the public!  Anyone with an interest in the Middle Ages is welcome to attend!  Our reenactors are well versed in their periods of study and love to share their passion with the public!  Students and teachers will find Days of Knights especially appealing. Historical accuracy is stressed. This is not a renaissance fair – no wizards, no fantasy fiction characters, and no pirates.

It’s not all about War!

Visitors will be able to learn about many aspects of the medieval era, including the roles of women and religion in society, medieval foodways, crafting, daily life and more from knowledgeable speakers and demonstrators. Clothing, material culture and armor will be as accurately reproduced as the wearers can make them.
