You'll find some of the usual seasonal eats, like cotton candy and sausage sandwiches, at our favorite summertime fest, the Great Lakes Medieval Faire. But we spend most of our hard-earned cash on humongous turkey legs, steaming bowls of apple dumplings, and homemade root beer. Strolling knights, jesters, and wenches put visitors in a 13th-century mood. More than two dozen performance and activity areas feature archery lessons, puppet shows, and jousting tournaments. Plus, 100-plus vendors sell everything from incense to chain mail.
Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Starts: July 8. Continues through Aug. 13
