  1. Medieval Fair

    Medieval Fair

    1220 Diffley Rd
    Eagan, MN 55123
    Call: (651) 454-9412

    Need a break from the 21st century? Come to the annual Medieval Fair! Discover what it was like to live during the Middle Ages in the wooded setting of Caponi Art Park. Members of the Society for Creative Anachronism’s Minnesota chapter bring you the Middle Ages as they should have been: without the strife and pestilence!

    Authentic pavilions will be on display in a Medieval Village as artisans in period dress present educational demonstrations and interactive activities. Look forward to rapier and armored combat, coin making, armorers, jugglers, period games, cooking, glass beads, and other arts and skills. Children large and small can try their hand at firing a crossbow. After visiting the Medieval Fair, be sure to tour the rest of the park including the Sculpture Garden and Theater in the Woods.
