“Days of Knights” at Alley Park Oct. 8 & 9

October 8, 2022

Upon entering the park, you are greeted by the earliest knights – those of the Holy Roman Empire.

On October 8 and 9 from 10 am to 4 pm, the annual Days of Knights will take place at  Charles Alley Nature Park in Lancaster.

Days of Knights is a national not-for-profit educational organization that hosts and organizes an annual living history event. The first took place in Frankfort, Kentucky in 2012 and has been held each year since. In 2019, the organization moved to Lancaster.

Per the Days of Knights website, the event is “a public educational event that strives to bring you a historically accurate re-creation of several time periods from the era known as the Middle Ages.  Visitors will be able to walk through a timeline encampment featuring living history enthusiasts re-creating the Norman invaders of Britain in 1066, crusaders from the 1200s, archers and knights from the 100 Years War, and many others.”

This free event is not similar to the Ohio Renaissance Festival. There are few vendors and no paid entertainers.

What you will find are fans of history who gather in Ohio to share their knowledge and demonstrate era-specific skills and artistry.
