Running from March 29 to April 1, 2008 between Grand Coteau and
Arnaudville the Acadiana Medieval faire is a recreation of a medieval
spring market faire similar to those found during the late gothic
period of continental Europe. Visitors to the third annual Acadiana
Medieval Faire will also encounter lively characters from Chaucer's
Canterbury Tales and delight in their tales as they shop in a unique
medieval-style market place, listen to authentic early music, watch a
show from the Middle Ages, or delight in the spicy food that is the
trade mark of Cajun Country.
Attracting more than 10000 visitors in its first two years, the
Acadiana Medieval Faire has been a tremendous success.
The Acadiana Medieval Faire is a not-for-profit corporation that is
the only Renaissance Festival in the South specifically geared to
