Press Release (ePRNews.com) - RIVERHEAD, N.Y. - May 24, 2017 - Long Islanders will once more have the opportunity to step back into the middle ages on June 10 and 11 as Medieval Scenarios and Recreations, Inc. presents the Riverhead Medieval Festival. Set on the spacious grounds of the Dorothy P. Flint 4-H Campground in Riverhead, this event boasts the pomp and pageantry of the middle ages, while showcasing the skills of many talented Long Islanders.
This family friendly event offers education and fun together; watch as noble warriors engage in combat, learn to shoot a bow from a master archer, marvel at the skills of our kingdom’s populace, and peruse the offerings in our marketplace including festival favorites and the works of talented local artisans. Be sure to stop by the Horses Healing Veterans booth to learn more about how this Long Island nonprofit is providing therapeutic services to local veterans and protecting at-risk horses. Should one find themselves hungry after a circuit around the festival, local favorite food trucks Old Thyme BBQ, Eat Me Drink Me and Mr. Frostie will be on site to provide the sustenance needed.
The Riverhead Medieval Festival is staffed largely by volunteer members of Medieval Scenarios and Recreations, a nonprofit educational organization which seeks to both maintain the skills of the middle ages and educate the public on this period of history. Long Island medieval enthusiasts may recognize some of the personalities here from the Sands Point Medieval Festival, a popular Long Island family event which closed several years ago.
Join the festivities on Saturday and Sunday, June 10-11, 2017 from noon to 5pm. The Dorothy P. Flint 4-H Campground is located at 3186 Sound Avenue in Riverhead. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 5-12; children 4 and under are free. To learn more, visit ‘Kingdom of Acre Festivals’ on Facebook, or http://www.kingdomofacre.org Source :
