Medieval Faire set for Saturday

PUTNEY — On Saturday, October 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., The Grammar School will transform into a medieval village once again as the school hosts its annual Medieval Faire. This event has been a family favorite for 30 years. Enjoy the festivities while the King and his Royal Court preside over the Faire. Kids can ride a flying dragon, battle a knight, and watch a live joust on horseback.

Fairgoers can also shop for goods in the village market, watch artisan demonstrations including blacksmithing, woodcarving, chain mail creation and more.

Other highlights this year include: Birds of prey from the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum; fencing demonstrations; archery and slingshot ranges; climbing walls;

Fairy House making; face painting; Sir Lancelot's flying horse; pony rides; giant chess; games for younger children at Merlin's Midway; candy-throwing catapult; and a scavenger hunt

Admission to the Faire is free. For children, there is a cost to go on the rides and games, of which there are many. The unlimited all day pass is $20, or if you prefer you can buy 12 tickets for $10 (rides are between two and three tickets).

There will also be a "tavern" with food at an average cost of $8. There is a marketplace of crafts and delicious desserts for sale as well.

For more information, contact The Grammar School at 802-387-5364. The Grammar School is located at 69 Hickory Ridge Road South in Putney.
