Before opening our gates to the public on Saturday, the Robin in the Hood Medieval Festival hosts an annual Education Day on the Thursday or Friday geared towards grade 4 students studying medieval history as part of their school curriculum. Welcoming all educational groups from public and private school boards as well as home school groups, we host over 1000 students annually giving them a chance to experience what life was like in the Middle Ages.

The day is broken down into six 25 minute workshops that the students rotate through, along with three tournaments to start the morning, to enjoy over lunch, and to wrap up the day. Our workshops include participation in medieval song and dance, hands on medieval armour and weapons, learning about birds of prey (with real vultures, owls, and falcons), and many more exciting activities. During the tournaments students can cheer on their favourite knights as they engage in combat in our center ring.

Registration for the Robin in the Hood Medieval Festival Education Day opens each year in early March. School groups are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. As we are typically at capacity before the end of March, we encourage registration as soon as possible once registration opens. The cost for the event is currently $10 per student with free admission for all teachers, supervisors, and parent volunteers.

If you have any questions or you are interested in having your name put on our e-mail list to receive a registration package please contact our Education Day Coordinator at
