On Sunday (June 9), the veil between realms shall lift and faeries, knights, and dragons will wreak havoc at Fraser River Heritage Park, just in time for the 23rd annual Fraser Valley Children’s Festival!
Academie Duello brings medieval martial arts to the mainstage at this year’s free, fairytale-themed family event.
The Vancouver-based, internationally renowned academie is the largest school of European swordplay in the world, and are sure to dazzle and educate young and old alike with their swordplay demos, live horses, and real armor and weaponry to try out.
Other mainstage acts include the Annwyn Studio Fiddlers, the Fraser Valley Magic Circle, and “Middle Eastern Tales” from Stories on Wheels.
There will also be plenty of interactive arts and crafts, workshops, food trucks, and magical characters roaming the park.
The Fraser Valley Children’s Festival runs from 10 a.m. 4 p.m. and is presented by the Mission Arts Council.
