Step back in time for a day of revels at the Medieval Fair. The annual Medieval Fair arrives March 31 – April 2, 2017 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.

Tips for a Great Time

1) While you may feel like you’ve traveled back in time, there are ATMs available.
2) Pets are allowed, though not encouraged because of the large crowds, and leash laws are strictly enforced.
3) While the event is free, parking is not. For a fee, you can park one block south of Reaves Park at Lloyd Noble Center on Jenkins Avenue.
4) To get the best view of the shows, arrive early to get a close spot.
5) Visitors to the Fair should be aware of the City of Norman’s ordinance that prohibits smoking in City parks.
6) Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.
