June 2016 - Medieval Festival at Upper Canada Village

Each year Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ontario takes a step to the side from its Canadian Settlement timeline to host a Medieval festival. We were asked to provide a viking element for this three day festival including their education day for the students on Monday. DARC was asked to provide our usual style of floating between first and third person interpretation in stations that demonstrated textiles, blacksmithing, bead making, and domestic activities.

It was a cold and wet weekend but the work of the camp went ahead undaunted by the inclement weather.
