Medieval Fair returns to Norman for 37th year

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Eckart said new vendors this year are selling a variety of goods including kilts, costumes, pottery and even spell supplies.

The fair also offers many learning opportunities beyond the basic entertainment. Friday, the first day of the fair, has been designated as “School Day.” Eckart said many school groups come to the fair to supplement their current studies on the medieval period.

The Medieval Fair also hosts a lecture series throughout the year as a part of their life-long learning objective. To add to that objective, they are offering a summer camp in July for kids in third through eighth grades.

The camp will teach children about medieval games, clothing and manners as well as heraldry and pageant plays, Eckart said. Children will write and produce their own pageant plays and present them to their parents the Friday of the camp. For more information, visit medievalfair.org.

Parking at the fair, $5, is available one block from the park at Lloyd Noble Center, located just north of State Highway 9 East on Jenkins Avenue. Handicapped parking is available on the park grounds on a first-come basis.

For a fully detailed schedule of events, visit medievalfair.org.
