|Two days, dozens of historical reenactors, sword fights, big cannons, and live combat!
STEP BACK IN TIME and visit with costumed (and sometimes armed) performers representing 9th C Scandinavia, 11th Century England, 18th Century England, 19th Century Canada, and 20th Century Germany.
You'll "Stroll Through the Ages" in our reenactment village with the Sons of Fenrir Vikings, Dragons Own Medieval Combat Group, Victorian Society of Alberta, Edmonton House Brigade, Yankee Valley Yankees, 10th Battalion (CEF) Commemorative Association (WWI), WWII First Special Service Force Reenactors, and the Prairie Motor Brigade!
And there's more! You can shop in our Artisan Alley seeing heritage arts and traditional crafts in keeping with the character of this festival.
NEW FOR 2019! - Medieval castles were mysterious places and oftentimes they had a maze. Horses in the Middle Ages were used by knights as they trained for battle. We have combined both at Days of Yore, with our new Medieval Stick Pony Maze! Kids get an "I conquered the Stick Pony Maze at Days of Yore" certificate. It'll be "Ahh-mazing"!
AND MORE NEW! - We are excited to include the 2A Community Band in this year's performance lineup. The band has a repertoire of Army, Air, and Sea Regimental Marches - plus morale-boosting, big band, swing, and sweet songs of separation that you'll enjoy singing along to on Saturday afternoon.
AND AT THE LIBRARY! - Gearing up for Days of Yore, on the afternoon of July 29th, the Didsbury Library is inviting everyone to an afternoon of sipping tea with suffragettes Nellie McClung and Irene Parlby, while learning about The Famous Five and their fight for women's rights! And a little military trivia for you as we head into Days of Yore: In May 1942, Canadian nurses became the first in any Allied country to have officer status!
This is the only festival of its kind - dedicated to historical authenticity, where you can see soldiers from throughout history intermingling with each other - and you! Experience life as a Viking, as one of King Arthur's Knights, as a fur trader with the Hudson's Bay Company, or a commander during one of the World Wars! And for the more delicate, come dressed in your finest and join Queen Victoria's friends in a rousing game of croquet!
Yes, we encourage your family to come dressed up in your favourite period costume and join in on the fun.
Make sure you take in Sunday afternoon's GRAND FINALE MELEE, when everybody tries to be the last man standing!
