Held annually since 1976, this event relives the Middle Ages with arts and crafts, food, games, jousting tournaments, human chess games, costume contests, and more.
Entertainment for the whole family includes minstrels, dancing, theater and reenactments, jugglers, magicians, knights jousting on horseback and human chess games. Brightly costumed characters include King Arthur, mermaids, and the fair's king and queen.
ADMISSION IS FREE!
The Medieval Fair of Norman is the state's largest weekend event and the third largest event in Oklahoma, and was selected by Events Media Network as one of the top 100 events in the nation.
Browse through the medieval village of over 200 art and craft booths offering unique and handcrafted wares. Offerings include pottery, wood crafts, stained glass, armor, costumes, fairy wings, jewelry, leather crafts, hair garlands, and much more. Watch master crafters demonstrating their skills!
The fair will be held Friday, March 26th thru Sunday, March 28th from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM in Reaves Park of Norman. We had a lot of success last year and hope to once again reach thousands with our message about greyhound adoption!
We are recruiting volunteers to staff the Hounds of the Heartland booth! It is required that any volunteer wear appropriate Renaissance garb and what fun that will be!
Please contact Amanda Przymus at (405) 701-8940 to sign up for a 3 hour shift to help spread the word about our noble greyhounds!
Shifts available are:
Friday, Saturday & Sunday:
10:00 - 1:00
1:00 - 4:00
4:00 - 7:00
Tips for Renaissance Attire:
-No bright colors (earth tones only... no purple please!)
-No halloween costumes (natural fibers please)
Some costuming pieces will be available at the booth. Enough to cover 2-3 adults at a time. We will also try to have a couple tunics available for our "small" volunteers :) However if you are able to provide your own garb that is wonderful! Below is a pattern for a simple renaissance style tunic.
