The Tennessee Medieval Faire is a rugged, outdoor, interactive festival set inside a recreated medieval village on the outskirts of Harriman. It is held annually the last three weekends in May, including Memorial Day. And don't miss their fall event - TN Pirate Fest - held in October.
As soon as you pass through the gates, you are transported into a magical world of fun and frolic. Stages with exciting and unusual entertainment are sprinkled throughout the medieval market for your amusement. Skilled artisans offer their creative wares; minstrels fill the air with music; colorful villagers regale you with jokes; and folk dancers invite you to join in the fun.
Just a few of the entertainers include Aaron Bonk who is known for living dangerously by juggling swords and fire; and the Steele Sisters, a nationally-known comedy sword-fighting show.
