Activities

Children’s Glen
Games, crafts and fun activities for the kiddies! Let them test their coordination on our Jacob’s Ladder.
Important: Please do not leave children unattended at the Children’s Glen or elsewhere at the faire. Thank you.

Archery Range
NHRF is happy to announce that Archery at the Three Maples will be run by JOAD (Junior Olympic Archery Development). Come try your hand at our range. Free to play, but donations to JOAD are encouraged!

Craft Demonstrations Many of our merchants will also be demonstrating their craft at their booths, such as weaving, leather work, and jewelry making. Enjoy the various live craft demonstrations throughout the faire.

Tea with the Queen! A great activity for kids! Children of all ages can attend this scheduled event and enjoy the Queen’s company. Want to be a knight? This is when the Queen does knighting ceremonies. Want to be a noble of the shire? Come to this event and you might just leave a Duke or Duchess!

Encampment Demonstrations
Visit the knights from the Brotherhood of the Arrow & Sword in the backfield and check out their camp, armor, and weapons. They are happy to answer all your questions (and the kids love to get their picture taken with them!) Or if you’re feeling brave, visit our pirates and gypsies and see what trouble they’re up to!

Charity Wench & Lad Auction
Bid on goods donated from our vendors (and a few other gracious souls!) and modeled by our strapping lads and lovely wenches! Every penny goes to one of this year’s chosen charities. See the schedule for times and locations.

Bellydance Lesson
Learn to bellydance with the Shimmynanigans!
