What To Expect

The walking parade consists of over 400 costumed medieval “characters” representing various people and places, events, and symbols of Joan of Arc’s short but valiant and dramatic life. A “Maid of Honor” is selected each year from a pool of local applicants aged 16-19 and this young Joan of Arc rides on horseback in the parade. Watch for knights, angels, peasants, kings and queens, jesters, stick horses, saints, priests, judges, and several representations of Joan. Collect handmade throws from each battalion, from handcrafted medallions to prayer cards, wooden swords to garden seeds. Enjoy live medieval music, brass bands, drumming, bagpipes, and large-scale puppets and props representing various chapters in Joan’s story.
