Editor's Note: The following is a press release from Caponi Art Park.
Discover what it was like to live in the Middle Ages during Caponi Art Park and Learning Center’s Medieval Fair on Sunday, September 30 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) will transform the woods of Caponi Art Park into a medieval village with authentic pavilions, costumes, music, art, cooking, weaponry and interactive demonstrations. New this year is a coin-making demonstration and angora goats and rabbits at one of the pavilions.
The Medieval Fair is an annual educational living-history program presented by the SCA’s Barony of Nordskogen chapter that brings the Middle Ages to life at Caponi Art Park. SCA is an international nonprofit devoted to the study of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The Barony of Nordskogen chapter is the active chapter of the SCA in the Twin Cities and surrounding area. Its members make education about the Middle Ages a priority and share their knowledge through historically accurate re-creations, demonstrations and classes.
All ages are invited to step back into the Middle Ages at the Medieval Fair. Admission to this event is free, with a $5 per person suggested donation to the nonprofit park. The event is rain or shine, and will only be canceled due to severe weather. Parking will be available at Caponi Art Park’s main lot at 1220 Diffley Road, as well as the Lexington-Diffley Athletic Field lot. Signs will be posted.
