Medieval days at the Colonial Plantation in Ridley Creek Park in Media, Pennsylvania

An annual Medieval event set on a beautiful 18th century living history flax plantation and farm. The event is held at one of the most beautiful times of year with the cooler weather and leaves turning all the shades of Fall.  Various encampments portray many aspects of Medieval Life. See how five hundred years of European culture thrived and changed. Romans, Saxons, Normans, and Vikings will portray life of this heroic era of Western Civilization. Finally witness the changes that technology made by the late Middle Ages by viewing the 15th century War of the Roses and Irish encampments. There will be long bow demonstrations at 1:00 and 3:00.

Pre-registered Living History groups to set up on Friday and pack-up on Sunday eve.
