Medieval Days

Medieval Days

Thanks to all participants and guests for making this another successful HFWC event! Huzzah!  Lords, ladies, knights, squires and serfs take over Historic Fort Wayne once again during our annual Medieval Days event. Come see how folks lived, ate, camped and fought. Demonstrations include armored knight duels, archery, hatchet throwing, knife throwing, cooking and dancing. A fun event that's been hailed as "a real-life Game of Thrones."
