Viking’s – A Warrior’s Weekend – February 12th and 13th
They came roaring through the icy mists of the far North in longboats and flame. World travelers, explorers and conquerors, these brave warriors and protectors established trade that introduced much of Europe to the goods and customs of far-off cultures. The Vikings are loyal friends yet fearsome foes, and they are here in our village this weekend to dominate the day!
Steampunk Time Travelers’ – A Revolution of Invention – February 19th and 20th
The unexpected is never a surprise on Steampunk Weekend! Time and space converge at the crossroads of literature and technology in this clever and confusing weekend of wonder. We celebrate a past that never was and a future that might have been. All things are possible in the fertile fields of imagination and invention. It’s an adventure that spans the centuries!
Wonderful World of Wenches – A Beautiful Empowerment! – February 26th and 27th
For Wenches Weekend we honor and celebrate all the glorious goddesses in our lives. This weekend recognizes all the wonderful women who “get it done,” the council of caregivers who are wives, sisters, daughters, and mothers, as well as those magnificent and incomprehensible muses who inspire poetry, music, and art. It is with deep respect and heartfelt affection that all men of the village should bow to these beauties, to demonstrate their utter dependence and submission to those who inhabit hearts and inspire actions!
Heroes & Villains – A Cosplay Carnival! – March 5th and 6th
The warriors of light and the armies of darkness wander the village this weekend. Will chaos reign or will good fortune prevail? Are you a hero or a villain? It’s all about two sides of the same coin. Just remember, that without the darkness we would never notice the light.
Highland Fling – A Celtic Celebration! – March 12th and 13th
Eat, drink and be merry as we revel in the mysteries and magnificence of the Celtic nations of Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany, and Wales recognizing rich traditions of music, dance, storytelling, and superstitions. On Saint Patty’s Day, everyone is Irish, so wear something green, grab a pint, kiss your best lad or lassie, and celebrate the heather-covered beauty of the Isles of the North!
Potter’s Magical Finale! – A Frolic of Faeries! – March 19th and 20th
Harry Potter and friends, and the entire staff of Hogwarts, and all magical academies of higher learning, issue an invitation to angels, elves, fairies, ghosts, goblins, imps, nymphs, ogres, pixies, sirens, and zombies – along with the magicians, druids, sorcerers, students, wizards, and witches who summon them! A benevolent spell is cast to call forth a magical finale to our festival. The unseen world is all around us with the blessings of enchantment and empowerment. Whether you are a Gryffindor, a Hufflepuff, a Ravenclaw or a Slytherin, all are invited and welcomed to our magical village!

The dragons – up to 20 feet in length – are the creation of Dino Don, Inc., the world leader in robotic animal exhibitions.

RETURNING FAVORITE – Wolgemut
Prepare for an adventure – Wolgemut performs historical music on original instruments such as the medieval bagpipes, shawms and bombastic drums as well as quiet instruments like the flute, medieval fiddle and harp.
