Medieval Faire, family fun planned at Putney school

Thursday October 4, 2012

PUTNEY -- The Grammar School campus in Putney will once again transform into a medieval village as it hosts the 24th Annual Medieval Faire -- a free, fall, family-friendly event -- on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors can enjoy the village as King Arthur and his royal court preside over games, feasts, and peasant frivolity. Join players gaming on the glen, merchants minding the village market, cooks tending a feast fit for a king, and musicians leading the festivities.

Traditional highlights include: Merlin the Wizard, climbing walls, archery, a candy-throwing catapult, haunted dungeon, dunking booth, pony rides, slay-the-dragon piñata, scavenger hunts, and knightings by King Arthur himself.

The Medieval Faire, with games, rides and entertainment for all ages, encourages people to come dressed as a brave knight, fair damsel -- or just come as you will.

Admission to the Medieval Faire is free for adults and children; all-day or individual game and ride passes are available with proceeds benefiting the student scholarship fund. Founded in 1960, The Grammar School is an independent preschool through eighth grade school.

The Grammar School is located at 69 Hickory Ridge Road South in Putney (Take I91 to Exit 4, Route 5N, left on Westminster Road, left on Hickory Ridge South.) For information call 802-387-5364 or visit
