PUTNEY- On Saturday, October 6, from 10 am to 4 pm, the Grammar School campus will once again be transformed into a medieval village as it hosts its 24th annual Medieval Faire.

Enjoy the village as King Arthur and his royal court preside over games, feasts, and peasant frivolity. Join players gaming on the glen, merchants minding the village market, cooks tending a feast fit for a king, and musicians leading the festivities.

Traditional highlights include: Merlin the Wizard, climbing walls, archery, a candy-throwing catapult, haunted dungeon, dunking booth, pony rides, slay-the-dragon piñata, scavenger hunts, and knightings by King Arthur himself.

The Medieval Faire, with its games, rides, and entertainment for all ages has been a family favorite for 24 years. Come dressed as a brave knight, fair damsel, or come as you will, just don’t miss the fun.

Admission to the Medieval Faire is free for adults and children alike. All-day or individual game and ride passes are available with proceeds benefiting the student scholarship fund. Founded in 1960, the Grammar School is an independent preschool through eighth grade school.

For information contact the Grammar School at (802) 387-5364 or visit www.thegrammarschool.org. The Grammar School is located at 69 Hickory Ridge Road South. Take I91 to exit 4, Route 5N, left on Westminster Road, left on Hickory Ridge South.
