This event has been postponed to Saturday, October 14

Join us for one of two sessions as we Return to the Renaissance on our oceanside lawn with a live musical performance, a demonstration of a Knight's battle, and some family-friendly improv by none other than Shakespeare himself!

The Brotherhood of the Arrow and Sword, an educational-based medieval reenactment group will perform an armored fight demo as well as explore life on the medieval battlefield. The Brotherhood is dedicated to the presentation and practice of historical European martial arts and other facets of medieval life. Their armored fight demonstrations are high energy and entertaining. The Penniless Jacks is a high-energy folk-rock band that focuses on livening up traditional "tavern" music. Shakespeare Approves will keep the kids giggling with his family-friendly antics and improvisational banter.
