This year's festivities will include a host of new and fantastic entertainment, plus some of your all-time favorites returning to join in the celebration of our 20th season.
Attention Teachers, Guidance Counselors, Group Leaders, and Individuals!
The Great Lakes Medieval Faire (your family fun Theme Park!) is offering a chance to demonstrate your talents at this year's 20th Anniversary Extravaganza with a showcase of local artists and creativity. We'd like you to conceive and illustrate your idea of what The Great Lakes Medieval Faire, The Legend means to you by producing an artistic, illustrated panel on wood, sized anywhere from 4' x 4' to 4' x 8'. Your creation can be anything from historical account to a fantasy concept and this opportunity is open to both groups and individuals. Your entry will be placed with the others on The Great Lakes Medieval Faire's Walk of Fame (within the gates of the festival), to be viewed and voted on by the festival patrons.
Entries will be classified by age groups. Scholarship Prizes will range from $500.00 to $100.00:
All entries must be turned into the faire office by June 1st, 2012 at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire office (see the Directions page for details). Voting will happen during the first weekend of the faire (July 7th & 8th, 2012). People's Choice voting can be done online or at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire. Winners will be chosen and the prizes awarded on Wednesday, July 11th, 2012. All entrants will receive a ticket to the Great Lakes Medieval Faire just for entering.
Note: all entries will become property of The Great Lakes Medieval Faire and may be used as deemed appropriate.
Are they fairies, pixies, or other throwbacks from the enchanted age? We welcome all our guests to step inside our newest exhibit to experience, first-hand, hundreds of butterflies glittering all about you and your family. You can even hold out your very own butterfly lollipop to entice your favorite-colored butterfly to land and feed only inches from your hand - how exciting; it's truly enchanting. After learning about their life cycle and enjoying their delicate beauty, you can try a refreshing glass of butterfly nectar or have your child's face painted as your favorite butterfly or fairy.
As well, if you haven't been on the website lately, we've posted our list for the 2012 Theme Weekends - and this year the theme for our second weekend, July 14-15th, will be decided by you, the loyal Friends and Fans of the Great Lakes Medieval Faire. Check the main page of the website to submit your ideas - so far some of the most popular choices include Christmas in July, Masquerade, Heroes and Warriors, Futuristic and Fantasy, and the coming of a second Middle Ages after the prophesized 2012 Doomsday. Drop a line to the Entertainment Director at email@example.com and let us know what you think - after all, it's your Faire and we want to make it the best it can be just for you.
