WheatonArts to Host Medieval-Themed Fantasy Faire June 23-24
WheatonArts and Cultural Center is pleased to host Fantasy Faire on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. In partnership with Mystic Realms, Ltd. ®, this 12th annual event features talented actors, musicians and performers as they bring to life the “Kingdom of Wheaton” by enacting a series of interconnected shows that tell the story of the day. Strolling costumed characters, portraying historical and mythical figures, interact with each other and WheatonArts visitors throughout the campus during both days of Fantasy Faire.
At Fantasy Faire, the Medieval and Renaissance periods are blended with mythology and contemporary popular fantasy. Visitors can watch and engage with a variety of family-friendly characters; from kings to elves and gypsy dancers to famous characters like Robin Hood, the whole family will be immersed in an interactive day of performing arts. Watch demonstrations of medieval combat and sword fighting, join a scavenger hunt to win pirate coins, train as a warrior princess, dance ribbons around the Spring Pole, try your hand at archery, join the Villagers of Wheaton Debate, create your own fire-breathing dragon marionette and more! Food and refreshments will be available for purchase.
Fantasy Faire is included in the price of admission to WheatonArts. Admission for the general public is $10 for adults, $9 for senior adults and $7 for students. Children five and under are free. Tickets are available at the front gate. For more information, visit wheatonarts.org or call (856) 825-6800.
