Some Things You Should Know Before Coming To The Fair


What are the festival dates and times?

Saturdays & Sundays, November 4-26, 2023 from 10am to 5:30pm, rain or shine.

Where is the festival located?

OUR NEW 47-ACRE HOME! Woods of Mallaranny (29847 FL-70 E., Myakka City, FL 34251). For the last 18 years, our team searched for a location that supported the historic medieval atmosphere that is at the heart of our event. We hoped to find a place that would inspire the imagination through majestic oak trees, lush meadows of grass, and winding creeks. In 2021, we were excited to announce that the search was over, and this dream become a reality. Our new home, the Woods of Mallaranny, offers 47-acres of stunning natural surroundings that will bring the fair to life. See our Map & Directions Page for more details.
