Bring the family to Braselton Town Green on Oct. 9 and 10, 2021 for the Braselton Medieval Faire! This unique and educational event is free to attend and runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Attendees will experience living history demonstrations including examples of daily life, cooking, music, the arms, armor and martial culture from the 11th century Battle of Hastings to the start of The Tudors’ Reign in the 15th century. The event will also include hands-on demonstrations and a variety of vendors.
A fun way to experience times gone by, the Town of Braselton has invited the director of History Now (www.history-now.org), Ken Johnston, and his talented group of historians and reenactors to hold two events on the Town Green.
Oct 9 & 10: A Medieval Faire presenting the Battle of Hastings
Nov. 27 & 28: A Renaissance Faire presenting the De Soto Exhibition
Not only are these events a fun and inviting way to experience the past, the programs tie into mandated Georgia Standards of Excellence including SSWH7, SSWH9, ELAGSE9–10L5, ELAGSE9-10RL10, ELAGSE11-12L5, and ELAGSE11-12RL10.
“The town partnered with History Now to create family-friendly events that everyone from history buffs to costume geeks can enjoy,” said Sloane Meyer, director of the Braselton Civic Center slated to open in January 2022. “Our hope is to build on these cultural events next year to include activities in the new Braselton Civic Center next to the Town Green.”
Presentations currently scheduled for Oct. 9 and 10 (same schedule both days):
12 p.m. – A Muse of Fire: English Language from Medieval to Modern
2 p.m. – Time in a Battle: Arms and Armor of the Battle of Hastings
