Originally scheduled for 7 Oct. this event has been postponed to the 14th.
Join us for one of two sessions as we Return to the Renaissance on our oceanside lawn with a live musical performance, a demonstration of a Knight’s battle, and some family-friendly improv by none other than Shakespeare himself!
The Brotherhood of the Arrow and Sword, an educational-based medieval reenactment group will perform an armored fight demo as well as explore life on the medieval battlefield. The Brotherhood is dedicated to the presentation and practice of historical European martial arts and other facets of medieval life. Their armored fight demonstrations are high energy and entertaining. The Penniless Jacks is a high-energy folk-rock band that focuses on livening up traditional “tavern” music. Shakespeare Approves will keep the kids giggling with his family-friendly antics and improvisational banter.

*General parking for this event will not occur on the premises. Off-site parking at Stage Fort Park will be required. Two free “Yellow School Bus” shuttles will run continuously from 10 am to 4:30 pm between the park and the Museum. There will be a Hammond Castle Museum staff member at the park & ride site in State Fort Park to assist with questions. Click here for directions to State Fort Park from the Museum. We encourage you to plan accordingly to allow enough time for the off-site parking at the Park, the approximately 4-minute shuttle ride to the Museum, and the check-in process upon arriving at the Museum.
