This May long weekend, Osoyoos Desert Park Racetrack will once again be transformed in to a Medieval arena filled with jousting Knights, Old World Games, award winning performers and traditional foods fit for a King.
Already recognized as a great event for families, organizers have added some new acts to the program and extended the hours of the event to appeal to the adults in the crowd.
“We naturally appeal to families, but we knew if we wanted to extend the hours of the event, we needed to find entertainment to attract an adult crowd,” says Bobbie Fischer, Founder & Organizer of the Osoyoos Medieval Faire. “The Saturday and Sunday day time program features family style entertainment and the Friday evening adults only will have more of a party atmosphere at the festival”.
On Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20 Jousters from around the world will come to compete in live jousting events and actors dressed in period costumes will re-enact life in Medieval times. A vendors’ village with buskers and firebreathers will entertain people of all ages.
Friday night’s “Medieval Madness” features Jeremy Messenger and renowned aerial artists Cosmic Commotion who will wow the audience and finish with a flare in the Fire Dance Finale.
This long weekend full line up is sure to please every member of the family!
The Osoyoos Medieval Faire costs just $25/day for adults and children 10 and under are free. Tickets are already selling on the website www.osoyoosfaire.com .
