Mark your calendar for the Open Fields Medieval Festival: Saturday, May 25, 2019

Come join the fun of the Open Fields Medieval Festival on Saturday, May 25, 2019 on the Thetford Hill Green from 11 am to 4 pm.

In the past, this event has been named a "Pick for Kids" by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce: "During this family-friendly celebration, the town center comes alive with the sights and sounds of a medieval village. Come in costume... meet Benny the Dragon, and enjoy feats of juggling and acrobatics. Even teens will go home happy." Lunch and snacks, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free choices, are available at the festival, so bring a friend, bring your appetite, and bring your enthusiasm. We look forward to seeing you there!
