Experience the Magic of the Middle Ages and Renaissance!

Zone A: Tempe campus

Travel back in time with the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the biggest open house in town! Here you can see medieval costumes, weaponry, chainmail, helmets, catapults, tapestries, and inventions of Leonardo da Vinci! Have your picture taken in front of a medieval castle, take the knight’s oath of chivalry, create your own Shakespearean poetry, and hear medieval music. For younger kids, we have medieval word puzzles, coloring books and word games. Come see real sword-fighting demonstrations by the Phoenix Historical Swordsmanship Society and beautiful costumes from Friends in Recreation and Education (FIRE)!
