Step back in time for a day of revels at the Medieval Fair. The annual Medieval Fair arrives April 5 – 7, 2019, at Reaves Park in Norman from 10 am to 7 pm each day. Enjoy mirth and merriment with kings, queens, knights and fools as the kingdom comes alive.

Held annually since 1977, this living history fair features arts, crafts, food, games, educational exhibits, demonstrations and ongoing entertainment at seven stages.
