Noon to 5:00 P.M.

Maypole dancing, crafts, mynstrels and our May Feast.

Mayday, 'somour games', was a popular holiday in the middle ages, a celebration of Sumer is i-cumen in. Bringyng in the May was the traditional form of this celebration. Young folk and others would venture into the woods before daybreak, or the night before, to gather wild flowers, greenery, and hawthorn boughs. Sometimes the young men would carry back a tree trunk, stripped of branches, to be redecorated with flowers and long ribbons. Many towns had a year-round Maypole in their village square around which villagers would enjoy dancing, games, contests, choosing a May Queen, and feasting.

Come join us in our 20th annual festival of merriment, feasting and the beauty of Spring in the countryside. Medieval clothing is encouraged, but optional. Greens, yellows and a chaplet for your hair are preferred on this occasion. Clothing rentals are available at the Clothier Shoppe.
