Olde English Faire

Sound ye trumpets, shine thine armour, sharpen ye olde sword, lace thy corsets and braid thy long, shining tresses. Gather thy children and challenge their imaginations with tales from ye Middle Ages. The Olde English Faire returns for the fifth time to Wildlife Prairie State Park on June 20, 21, & 22. This fundraiser for Wildlife Prairie Park pays tribute to the sights, sounds, aromas, speech and activities of the Middle Ages. Come cheer on sword fighters, jousters and archers as they compete in mock battles. Take in the tales, tricks and tunes of roving story tellers, magicians and musicians. Watch the acrobats, musical acts and comedians amongst the flora and fauna of the park. You can shop with our fine artisans for treasures galore. There will be plenty of hearty food and beverages offered throughout the Park, as well as shaded areas to rest, restroom facilities and free parking.

Make sure to apply sunscreen, wear light, loose clothing, and drink lots of water during the day. It gets *very* hot out there. We don't want anyone to get heatstroke.

      It's literally right next to the road. It's the gate. Parking is across the street in the fields (police officers and volunteers will direct you to where to park), and we'll meet across the road. Trust me, you can't miss the shaded gate area :)

      I love going to this! The jousting tournament is really cool, and the storytellers and various small acts that perform skits and music are entertaining. I always have a good time, but I love this kind of stuff lol
