Osoyoos Faire promises weekend
of medieval fun

Denise Blashko

The Osoyoos Medieval Faire is back again this May long weekend — the family-fun event this time including a special ticketed event just for adults.

“We have expanded the vendor village and added more entertainment for the weekend,” Bobbie Fischer, Faire Organizer explained. “Audiences will see jousting knights in full-metal armour and watch mounted competitions in Old World games of skill.

“Village vendors include food, artisans, and a variety of buskers, including a stilt-walking juggler, fire breathers, and sword fighting.”

Family entertainment will include Jump’nJax inflatables, horse and pony rides and stilt-walking clinics for children.  There will also be some bull riding and axe monkeys for those looking for more of a thrill.

Under the big top, you’ll find a stage full of dancers and a pub featuring craft beer by The Cannery Brewery and wines by Adega on 45th.  There will be live music by Rob’n’Walker and Route 33.

And for the adults, a special Friday-evening event will allow you to get your squire on.

It is called Medieval Madness and it runs from 6 – 9 pm in the Faire’s “Great Hall.”

The evening will feature singer-performer Jeremy Messenger and Cosmic Co-Motion, a multi-talented circus inspired group from Kelowna that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats with aerial acrobatics and a fire dance finale.

“This is one event you won’t want to miss this summer,” said Bobbie. “It’s an event packed with history and entertainment for all ages.”

Tickets for each day and for Friday evening are available online at $20 each. Children under 10 — when accompanied by an adult — get in free of charge. You can also pick up tickets at the gate for $25.
