Pirate’s Treasure Hunt
This is an activity for kids on Sunday only. The recommended age is 3-12 but we’re not counting.
To participate, go to the Knights of AMOG, the big encampment with the towers, to the right when you enter the festival. Look for the sign “Treasure Hunt Starts Here.” Their location is on the map in the program. They will give each child a paper “Booty Bag” to collect their treasure in.
Off Stage Entertainment
Less scheduled but certainly no less entertaining, our performers bring the village to life throughout the day by entertaining in the streets and in their own living history encampments.
Parades wind their way through the festival at any given moment. Step aside and enjoy the view. Do remove your hat for Her Majesty!
Look out for the Constables of The Shire. They may arrest you or put you in the stocks for some imagined transgression, but it’s all in good fun. The Northstar Penguins may also put you in the stocks and give you a good drubbing. It’s nice and cool on a hot day and is all voluntary and good fun.
The New Queen’s Ha’Penny Consort plays music to entertain Her Majesty The Queen throughout the day. And speaking of Her Majesty, don’t miss seeing our glorious Queen and her Lords and Ladies, their attendants and royal guards. You have never seen such a spectacle.
As you can see, the festival is a very musical event and there are many more musicians and singers, such as Joust Kidding, a trio of singers/actors performing period and humorous songs and sketches.
Dressing The Queen
Have you ever wondered how those nobles got dressed? If you were a Lady it took a small army of attendants to get you dressed and all cinched up. Gentlemen also had to have servants help then get into their finery. Just getting dressed was a real task. Our very own Queen Elizabeth and her Ladies in Waiting will show you how it’s done. This isn’t a peep show, it is all G-Rated. 1:30 at the Royal Pavilion.
