-A A +A

Darkhorse Entertainment LLC welcomes the public to go back in time at the Tennessee Medieval Faire.

The grand opening is the last three weekends in May, including Memorial Day, in Harriman.

“It’s a new tradition – Joust for You!” proclaimed Barrie Paulson, Dark Horse vice president, manager and entertainment director.

“The Medieval Faire has something for everyone.”

The Tennessee Medieval Faire will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 16-17, May 23-25 and May 30-31.

Tickets are $14.95 for ages 13 and older, and $7.95 for ages 5-12; admission is free for ages 4 and younger.

Free parking is included.

The festival is at 550 Fiske Road, Harriman.

“The Faire is fun and family-friendly – and includes plenty of theatrical violence,” Paulson said.

The rock stars of the Faire perform The Royal Joust in the tournament arena.

There will also be Warriors’ Chess, where the characters fight to take over the square.

Warhorse rides will be offered between arena shows.

Rotating on the stages will be professional, interactive, comedy shows. These include The Ridiculously Dangerous Fire, Whip and Sword Show; The Steele Sisters; Fantasies, Fables & Fortunes; and Albi Belly Dancers.

There will also be Celtic musicians, interactive folk dancers, puppet shows, games and The Royal Players, whose characters include young King Henry VIII.

Period crafts, food and beer will be available.
