PRESS RELEASE: MEDIEVALFEST 2024

Updated: 2 days ago

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


HUZZAH! MONTCLAIR HAS ITS OWN SUMMER FAIRE:

MEDIEVALFEST IS COMING SOON



MONTCLAIR, New Jersey – July 4, 2024 – Montclair Early Music (MEM) invites you to embrace the pageantry of the past at its upcoming MedievalFest, on Sunday, August 25th, from 11-4:00 pm, at the Montclair Art Museum.


Watch armored knights spar, play Viking lawn games, create enchanting jewelry, dance a merry jig, and get styled with fairy hair or serenaded by troubadours at this family-friendly, splendorous spectacle.


In our village marketplace, purchase a leather pouch, dragon candle, magic wand, and other handcrafted keepsakes from an array of period artisans, and feast on savory meat pies and other refreshments. Celebrate the day with a frosty tankard of MedievalFest Ale, a luscious honey beer concocted by the brewmaster at Montclair Brewery.


Enjoy live music from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods, featuring the Montclair Early Music vocal and instrumental ensembles, and a performance by our children’s recorder group, DragonBards.


“We’re hoping to bring the magic and fun of the Renaissance Festival into the heart of Montclair, while helping fund the education scholarships for all our amazing young students,” says Louisa Valentín, MEM’s executive director.


If you like, join us in donning period garb to help channel your inner lord, lady, jester, peasant, pirate, or fairy and immerse yourself in the revelry of a bygone era. Huzzah!
