 Co-organizeer Juanita DeVos   said they need  a lot of volunteers to help out during the Faire itself, but more importantly to prepare the site, at the corner of Highway 4 and Township Road 7-4, just 12 minutes south of Lethbridge. The location also appears through google maps.

“We’ve got Vikings coming and if you own a horse, you can even learn how to joust,” enthused DeVos, noting that workshop is extra , but everything else id included in the ticket price.

“ But we’re building a maze of palattes, so we need people to help build that,” she said.
There will be a lot of fun at the Faire including  Medieval Battle demos, jousting demos, storytellers, musicians, acrobats, arrow tag, axe throwing a mead and ale gardens, a medieval feast and much more.

The Lethbridge Medieval Club will be on hand as well as Vestrheim Vikings,  and the Kingdom of Avacal (society for Creative anachronisms) will all be taking part and many more. All of which is on their website
 So to get things ready there is a work  party on  Saturday, July 6 to build the maze, fences and clean the site as well as one next weekend. Everybody who shows up  get a  pass to the faire.

“There is a lot of construction that needs to be done,” she said, adding there is work to be done during the faire as well.

“We‘d like to bring the magic bus  back so we can run a shuttle service, but we need a bus and someone to drive it,” she said. You can volunteer through volunteer Lethbridge or directly through their website.
Tickets for the Faire just went on sale. They are $15 for adults, $10 for youth. Children get in for free.
