Now through Wednesday, Aug. 22.
Children of all ages are invited to register for the summer reading program, Medieval Summer Knights Read. During our summer program kids and families can enjoy crafts, story times, large group programs, and small group programs as well as movies. For our Knights Read Challenge, kids are encouraged to read 40 picture/early reader books or 4,000 pages over the summer and keep a reading log of their age appropriate books. Those who complete the quest will be knighted by the Royal Court at the festival at the end of the summer. Knights will receive a T-shirt. Registration required in-person.

Wonderful Wednesdays—Alex the Jester

Enter the world of the Wise Fool, and take an inspiring journey to Medieval times. Alex the Jester prefers action to words, from mind bending sight gags to amazing stunts.
