Days of Yore in Didsbury

Two days, dozens of historical reenactors, sword fights, big cannons, and live combat!

Step back in time and visit with costumed (and sometimes armed) performers representing 9th C Scandinavia, 11th Century England, 18th Century England, 19th Century Canada, and 20th Century Germany. You’ll “Stroll Through the Ages” in our reenactment village with the Sons of Fenrir Vikings, Dragons Own Medieval Combat Group, Victorian Society of Alberta, Edmonton House Brigade, Yankee Valley Yankees, 10th Battalion (CEF) Commemorative Association (WWI), WWII First Special Service Force Reenactors, and the Prairie Motor Brigade!

Battles throughout the day, music with pipers and fifers, sing-a-longs, storytelling – and did we say – BIG CANNONS?!! And there’s more! You can shop in our Artisan Alley seeing heritage arts and traditional crafts in keeping with the character of this festival.
