Experience the Middle Ages: Fighting! Dancing! Arts! Crafts! The community is invited to attend Farmingdale Medieval History Day! The Canton of Lions End, in the Crown Province of Østgarðr returns to the Village Green in Farmingdale for the Third Annual Farmingdale Medieval History Day. Wearing Medieval clothing of different centuries, they will perform demonstrations and displays of some skills, as well as arts and crafts. The fighters and fencers will show off their prowess and their splendid armor (internal rules forbid audience participation in the fighting, but they can answer questions). Tournament participants will choose a child in the crowd to champion and token prizes will be given to the winners of the tournaments. Artisans of all sorts will display their work and give children and their parents, hands-on time to explore their crafts. Learn how to write in the Medieval fashion and what Calligraphy entails, see how embroidery was done, see how glass beads were made in the Middle Ages. Play games that were created hundreds of years ago, but are still fun to play today. There will also be several merchants selling items relevant to the modern Middle Ages, such as hand-made soaps. The event is FREE, intended for all ages, and the rain date is June 10th.
