Hear ye! Hear ye! The city’s most eccentric weekend is almost here and you won’t want to miss it! This summer, get in character and stay in character for an event unlike anything else – the Calgary Medieval Faire & Artisan Market which kicks off at the city’s Wild Wild West Event Centre later this month.

Held and attended by many since 2019, fantasy fans will be encouraged to fully immerse themselves into a time long before sliced bread and light switches, while shopping for unique goods and catching some unique performances.

From magic and jugglers to turkey legs and armour, live out your every Princess Bride, Game of Thrones – inspired dream, mix, mingle and make some memories all while brushing shoulders with royalty and squires alike.

Unapologetically embrace traditional slang, wander various merchants selling on-brand goods, indulge in a cup of ale or two, enter to win prizes, and take in some old-timey entertainment including storytellers, stilt walkers and more.

If this sounds like something you’d be into – check out their website here “as you wish,” and snag yourself a ticket!

Not going would be simply “inconceivable!”
