Visit Alma, Wisconsin on Saturday, June 8th for Castlerock Museum’s fourth annual Fire in the Shire event, a citywide celebration of all things medieval. Join us for what promises to be an exciting day full of colorful exhibits, lively demonstrations, good food, shopping, and family fun.

Highlights will include a knightly parade, sword fighting demos, medieval reenactors, arms and armor, live music and shows, the Search for the Holy Grail, a fire breather/sword swallower, belly and Morris dancers, jugglers, and a masquerade ball.

Participating groups and individuals include: Bardmageddon, Brothers Dymm, Clann Tartan, Constant State of Confusion, Kazimir the Hungry, Lasa Anita Tribal, the Midwest Renaissance Actors Guild, Uptown-on-the-Lakes Morris, the Wisconsin Historical Fencing Association, and A Life Medieval.

We'll be posting the full schedule of the events on the museum's Facebook page and in the coming weeks.

The event is cosponsored by the Hotel de Ville. For more information, contact the museum at [email protected].
