The event will also include hands-on demonstrations and a variety of vendors," said Braselton tourism director Nikki Perry.
Presentations currently scheduled for Oct. 9 and 10 (same schedule both days):
12 p.m. – A Muse of Fire: English Language from Medieval to Modern
2 p.m. – Time in a Battle: Arms and Armor of the Battle of Hastings

The Town of Braselton has invited the director of History Now (www.history-now.org), Ken Johnston, and his group of historians and reenactors to hold two events on the Town Green: Oct 9 and 10, A Medieval Faire presenting the Battle of Hastings; and Nov. 27 and 28, A Renaissance Faire presenting the De Soto Exhibition
“The town partnered with History Now to create family-friendly events that everyone from history buffs to costume geeks can enjoy,” said Sloane Meyer, director of the Braselton Civic Center slated to open in January 2022. “Our hope is to build on these cultural events next year to include activities in the new Braselton Civic Center next to the Town Green.”
