San Benito County Fairgrounds
Welcome to West Kingdom Towne, where you are invited to roam amongst our artisans, craftspeople and merchants, and to join in and learn about the busy hum of daily life in a prosperous medieval town. You’re in luck, as you are visiting while we celebrate the renewal of spring with a Towne Faire! In addition to the activities of our day-to-day townsfolk, you’ll be witness to the wondrous entertainments that a medieval faire would typically attract. A detailed schedule of artisan displays and entertainment will be published as the event draws nearer.
There will be something for everyone. A sampling of the activities includes a heavy fighting Pas d’Armes, rapier, needlework display and instruction in Miladies Solar, two taverns (ID required), a tea house, blacksmiths, a scriptorium, wrestling, a footrace, archery, tailoring, cooking, moneying, music, theater, many children’s activities, and much more. Check the event website below for more information.
