Great Lakes Medieval Faire runs through Aug. 11 in Trumbull Township

TRUMBULL TOWNSHIP — Lords and ladies, witches and warlocks, wenches and wizards will visit the fictional town of Avaloch through Aug. 11 at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire.

The interactive faire includes a cast of villagers and merchants, artisans and musical performers, including a real knights’ jousting and festival food and drink.

Sunday is the final day of the Alter Ego Tyme Travel Experience, a time for people of all time periods and world to come together for one time-bending weekend.

“People can come dressed in cogs, goggles, as science fiction character, or a cartoon,” said festival founder Larry Rickard.

July 20 and 21 is the Roman Toga Holiday, where bed sheets as clothing is encouraged as people channel their inner Julius Caesar.

The popular Pirate Invasion takes place July 27 and 28.

“Join in the invasion in full pirate gear,” Rickard said.

The weekend will be full of entertainment, contests for captains, first mates and crew, music and adventure.

The Celtic Celebration will make all things Irish and Scottish Aug. 3 and 4. Pipers, Highland games, music, Scottish wares, foods, Celtic contests and a lot of kilts will mark this weekend of fun and heritage, Rickard said.

The final weekend of the Faire will be the Barbarian Return.

“Warriors will charge the shire with brut strength,” Rickard said.

The weekend will include music and feats of strength.

The Faire is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, rain or shine. Costumes are available for rent. Parking is free. Admission is $22 for adults and $6 for children ages 5 to 12. Children age 4 and younger enter free. Weekend passes are also available.
