There’s no doubt the Miami Valley likes a festival and September is jam packed with them! It can truly be overwhelming trying to keep up with them, heck there are festivals for popcorn, shrimp, marigolds, vegan foods, mums, pretzels and apples in Sept that we know of, not to mention celebrations of Greek, Italian and Hispanic culture. (Check out Dayton 937’s calendar to see them all.) But let’s just take this one week at a time and look ahead to next weekend:

This 35-acre permanent village has been authentically and historically re-created in the flavor of 16th Century England. Visitors will see a full day of entertainment including full-armored Jousting the way it was done over 400 years ago by real Knights in shining armor. Queen Elizabeth I presides over the festivities as dozens of Renaissance musicians, dancers, comedians, jugglers, sword-fighters, storytellers and hundreds of costumed performers entertain patrons of all ages on 17 stages in over 100 shows daily.
More than 150 world-class artisans display wares in this unique shoppers’ paradise. Master artisans demonstrate timeless arts of glassblowing, jewelry making, blacksmithing, stone carving, leather crafting, weaving and more.
Sign up for the Royal Feast to enjoy a 5-course meal plus alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and receive a commemorative mug or grab a ticket for the Pub Crawl or the Whiskey Witches of Willy-Nilly Spirits Tasting, and get tickets for the Naughty Bawdy Pub Show featuring the singing sirens.
