Magical Winter Knights Comes to the Budweiser Events Center December 29-30
Festival season may be over, but that doesn't mean the fun has to come to an end. On December 29-30, the Budweiser Events Center will transform into a medieval fantasy village when Magical Winter Knights comes to town. This two-day event brings together the ancient and modern worlds, with a little bit of magic, pageantry, feasting, shopping, games and tournaments, all rolled into one epic experience.
On Friday and Saturday, guests can take a stroll through the medieval marketplace, where artisans and shop keepers will have their crafts on display. There will be air bounce rides, face painting, hands-on games and crafts for the kiddos too. Visit one of two village stages where some of the best medieval style Buskers will be performing throughout the day. After a walk through the village, guests are invited to take a seat at the Nobles Feast, where as a Noble you will dine on a scrumptious meal with the King and Queen and enjoy live entertainment. Once the feast is over you'll be escorted back to the modern age and take your seat in the arena to watch high energy Full Contact Tournament. Some of the best medieval style warriors will be participating in a battle that's cross between UFC and Gladiator. The first half of the show is a hand to hand Medieval Combat Championship with four armored warriors putting themselves to the test, using different medieval style weapons. The main event takes place after intermission, where eight knights on horseback, and fully clad in armor will compete in an International Full Contact Jousting Tournament.
There are three ticket options for Magical Winter Knights: the Village Fair package for $10 which only gets you into the Village Fair, General Admission for $30 which includes entrance to the Village Fair, Medieval Combat Championship, and the Full Contact Joust, or the VIP package for $55 which gets you into the Village Fair, VIP seating for the Medieval Combat Championship and Full Contact Joust, and a seat at the Nobles Feast.
