Medieval Fair returns to Norman for 37th year

NORMAN — The past becomes the present this weekend during the 37th annual Medieval Fair 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Reaves Park, 2501 S. Jenkins Ave.

Medieval Fair Coordinator Ann Marie Eckart said the free, three-day fair allows visitors to step back into time.

“It’s a chance to get a broad glimpse of life long ago and it’s not just the math or just the science or just the art. It’s a little bit of everything — more of a liberal studies type perspective of seeing every angle of what life was like back then,” Eckart said.

With 298 artist and food vendors, Eckart said this year’s fair has something for everyone, featuring things that can’t be seen anywhere else in the metro area the rest of the year like a royal court, jousting, human chess games, birds of prey and a range of performances and foods.

“Almost anything they’re interested in in the real world, in the regular world, they’re going to find at the fair. We have artists from all over the country, from 42 different states. And everything from fine art to simple crafts,” she said. “We have food vendors with a wide variety of foods, if they want to sample something from the Middle East or something from France, or some Cajun cooking — we’re even going to have alligator on a stick.

“Whether you want to experience different food, see different art or see different performers or shows, the performers also are from all over the country. We have a great deal of local talent, but we also have many people coming from all over the country.”

Food vendors this year include a spread of confections, from savory to sweet, from favorite vendors from years past. New vendors include Classic Kettle Corn, Penny’s Pasties and Pies, Far Corner Tavern serving drinks and Moto Chef serving scotch eggs — hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage, rolled in breading and deep fried.
