Day of Medieval Fun for the whole family

Back again on Family Day, Monday February 19, 2018

It was family fun event with many activities for everyone to enjoy.

Thanks to a generous new sponsor, KnightsFest returned to the GYMC! The festival included displays, costumes, games, activities and entertainment, all to the theme of the Medieval era. This was a free event for the whole family.

“KnightsFest will be fun for the whole family,” commented Gabriella Currie-Ziegler, Executive Director of the GYMC. “We’re bringing in professionals, who are well versed in the Medieval and Renaissance eras, to educate our visitors through music, costumed demonstrations, interactive games and activities, armour workshops and brass rubbings. What better way to celebrate Family Day than for the family to participate in a fun event together.”


The day’s festivities included:

• Weapons & Armour
• Games & Activities
• Musicians
• Jugglers
• Brass Rubbing (Grace Carrothers)

THANK YOU to everyone who helped make Knightsfest 2018 a success! To our generous donors, volunteers, coordinators and participants, we extend our deepest gratitude to you all. That’s a wrap for 2018—we hope to see you next year!
