31st Annual Hoggetowne Medieval Faire: Weekend 1
The Alachua County Fairgrounds is transformed into a bustling medieval marketplace for the 31st Annual Hoggetowne Medieval Faire on January 28-29 and February 3-5, 2017. Step back in time and cheer on jousting knights, wander through the medieval marketplace where hundreds of artisans sell their wares, witness a battle on the living chess board, partake in olde world games and rides and feast on food fit for a king. Enjoy nine stages of entertainment where the forgotten skills of full-flight falconry, gripping aerial acrobatics and old-world magic come to life. Jugglers, knife throwers and gypsy dancers add to the excitement as they fill the streets of Hoggetowne.
