Fergus Medieval Faire

Downtown Fergus, Ontario is the perfect place to go back in time for the Fergus Medieval Festival, it looks like you are in a castle with all the stonework and those traffic signals, because I am sure that old castles had traffic signals. On Saturday, July 22, 2023 the core of the small town was closed to vehicles so the festival could take over and wander the street, alleys and parking lots visiting the vendors, displays and friendly armed combat could take place.

I was very impressed in how many of the visitors got into character or costume to add enjoyment to the day. The medieval faire ran from 11am to 5pm and the crowds were large and enthusiastic. From the festival's website "Join us for a free, family-oriented day of medieval fun & merriment. Featuring knights and ladies, vikings, battles, magicians and wizards, monks, birds of prey, musicians, archery practice, fight the knight (for kids) and more!"

The range of cosplay at the event included the traditional knights, royalty, vikings and other, more eclectic trappings - like furries, Lord of the Rings characters and other some cartoon characters.

If you like to dress up or go see these medieval events you can find more information on Medieval Festivals in Ontario on the faires website. The upcoming 2023 faires include the Oxford Renaissance Festival and the Salty Dog Pirate Festival.
