Featured Festival: Colorado Medieval Festival in Loveland
Calling all Lords & Ladies,
Hear ye, hear ye! The Colorado Medieval Festival is back and better than ever.
Presented by The Savage Woods, the event will be held under the trees in west Loveland, Colorado.
The minstrels will sing, the bees will buzz happily around the mead and beer and the sound of sword play will echo throughout the Northern Colorado’s forests and glades.
Merriment will be had by all.
While this event has struggled to gain a foothold in Northern Colorado in the past, this year, the new event managers, The Savage Woods, LLC, has brought together a cornucopia of vendors and entertainers for a three-day medieval extravaganza.
More than 40 vendors have signed up to take part in the event, and Kitty Wild, owner of The Savage Woods, has worked hard to the vendor lineup relevant to the festival’s theme. There will be jewelry makers, wood craftsman, soap makers, Renaissance style clothing and so much more.
In addition to the “village market,” guest at the Colorado Medieval Festival are welcomed to enjoy adult beverages; the kind that would have been served in the Middle Ages. Hunters Moon Meadery of Severance, Colorado, will provide a variety of meads while Buckhorn Brewers will provide the ale. And the day will not be complete without a turkey leg from Blind Peasant Productions.
Once you’ve got your drink and meat, it’s time for entertainment, and the Colorado Medieval Festival has a little something for everyone. Of course, music will play a big part in the weekend’s festivities, but so too will swordplay.
The Society for Create Anachronisms will be represented at the festival. This is an organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe including clothing, dancing and more.
Scottish Highland Games athletes will also be attendance, displaying their superb skills at throwing and tossing large and very heavy objects.
In addition, Castle Wall Productions, a theatrical combat troop specializing in live-steel entertainment, will be on hand to exhibit their skills as swordsman and swordswomen.
With this incredible lineup of entertainment and delightful shopping experience, the Colorado Medieval Festival is sure to be a memorable weekend of fun for the entire family. And at just $8 per person (children 5 and under free) it’s a fantastically affordable festival – huzzah!
