Hear ye, hear ye, it’s time for the 8th Annual Sherwood Forest Faire! Transport your family back in time at this fun-filled Medieval-themed Faire based on the tales of Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Enjoy faeries, swordplay, theatre, magic, comedy, and games starting on Saturday, March 4 and running every weekend from 10a.m. ’til dusk through April 23 (as well as Friday, Mar. 17).  Located in McDade, Texas, the Faire is set in a 23-acre village in a wooded setting that features shoppes, pubs, restaurants and stages.

sherwood2The Sherwood Forest Faire is one of our favorite annual events! While you are there, you can stroll through the village, gnaw on a giant turkey leg, sip some grog and enjoy the sights and sounds of more than 40 stage acts of musical, comedic and dramatic performances. Watch a joust, falconry or dog show, or just people-watch (many folks attend in full costumed regalia — which you are encouraged to do).
