Thanks to the generous support of TD, we’re excited to offer KnightsFest again this year and provide a fun FREE event for the whole family to participate in. This is one of our most popular events at the GYMC, and always a lot of fun. Blackthorn Production returns to be our guides through the Medieval and Renaissance eras. They will interact with attendees through music, costumed demonstrations, interactive games and activities, and armour displays. Also, new this year is Middle Easter dance by the Valizan & Company. What better way to celebrate, learn and have a great time together!
