Prince John’s Medieval Festival

Please join us for the 2nd Annual Prince John’s Medieval Festival. This event combines Medieval and Renaissance themed fun with historical information and demonstrations. The festival is held in the Hartman Union Building at Plymouth State University. Though our event is centered on the time of Prince John and legends such as Robin Hood, all time travelers are welcome! Come in costume or every day wear, as a character or as yourself.

This event is free and open to the public. All activities can be enjoyed by the entire family or will be notably marked otherwise.

This year, our event will feature demonstrations and displays by the local branch of the SCA. Also attending will be The Guild of Saint Morritz and Daniel Greenwolf, magician and entertainer.  Other confirmed displays and demos to enjoy:

  • A Japanese tea ceremony, with the PSU Japanese Culture and Anime Club
  • Various games (live chess, board games, activities, and possibly some RPGs), with the PSU Gaming Club
  • Medieval music arranged and performed by the psu panther band
  • Four foot trebuchet demo by the PSU Medieval Society

Also be sure to stop by our “Market”, and check out some period and period-inspired wares!
