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 school groups and families. All proceeds from the faire are re- invested in the faire and its educational programs.
