Three ways to #GoMedieval:
Medieval Feast in Downtown Vancouver
As many of you will know, July 21st is Belgian National Day (I had no idea either). To celebrate, the tremendously delicious Belgian restaurant Chambar will be hosting its annual Medieval Feast on July 22nd. There promises to be a court jester, folks in furs, and plenty of medieval costumes. Oh, and no shortage of food. Stop by to enjoy some roast pork, frog legs and other dated delights.
If a medieval feast isn’t enough, how about a whole weekend? If that’s more your flavor, you’re in luck! The BC Renaissance Festival is commencing this week in Langley. There will be sea shanties (some saucy, others PG), pirates, knighting, jousting, dance, comedy, and visits by Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon.
‘Tis the season for Medieval Festivals and not just in BC! Here’s a quick summary of upcoming Medieval Festivals:
- The Black Rock Medieval Summerfest in Augusta, Michigan began this weekend and continues over the next two weekends. Fiddles, jousting and pirates are just the beginning. A short 6hr drive from Toronto, or 3hrs from Chicago, for the ambitious family weekend away.
- In England, the Tewkesbury Medieval Festival will be happening this weekend and in Ireland, the Kilmallock Walled Town Day will be happening later in the summer on August 19th.
