Amidst the ancient stones of Sherwood Forest Faire’s Castle, within the grandeur of the great hall, let us gather to celebrate the rebirth of nature’s splendor. Embrace the spirit of chivalry and camaraderie as we come together in joyous communion.

From the haunting melodies of live music that echo through the corridors, to the subtle intrigues that linger in every whispered conversation, The Reverdie promises to be an evening like no other. Indulge in light refreshments fit for kings and queens, and immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of medieval politics and courtly affairs.

Yet, amidst the mirth and merriment, there lies a subtle mystery waiting to be unraveled. Keep your senses sharp and your wits about you, for beneath the veneer of celebration, shadows may conceal secrets untold.

Join us on April 6th, 2024, from 7-11p.m., and step into a world where the echoes of the past dance with the promise of tomorrow. Dress in your finest attire and prepare to be swept away by the magic of The Reverdie.
