About School Days
Join us for School Days at the Faire, where students journey back to a 16th century English country faire and become immersed in the culture of our 35-acre Elizabethan village. During their visit students gain knowledge of medieval armor from knights of old, witness the sport of falconry, cheer their champion at the Human Chess Match and Tournament Jousts, encounter nobles and peasants from the pages of history books while exploring the Shire of Mount Hope.
Whether participating in period song or dance, or accepting a cameo role with a wandering troupe of players, students express their creativity both on stage and throughout their encounters with the villagers, all within the confines of a dramatic Tudor village in a safe, secure learning environment. Merchants and craftsmen demonstrate their ancient crafts including a blacksmith, glassblower, beekeeper, clothier, leather smith, bowyer, potter, herbalist, and many more. Students also have the chance to participate in competitions and participatory events designed to provide hands‐on learning in a fun, yet competitive setting.
