Medieval Fair Dancers

Medieval Midwinter Ball to be Held in January

Learn the lively and exciting dances of the medieval and renaissance time periods while you dine, drink, and dance the night away! The Medieval Fair Department within University of Oklahoma Outreach announces its third annual Medieval Midwinter Ball to be held Saturday, January 16 at the Sam Noble Museum from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

The event is being held at the Sam Noble Museum in honor of the museum’s new exhibit “First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare”, which will be open for viewing during the ball. A sumptuous buffet will be provided by University Catering. The Unpronounceable Irish Band led by Bruce Cannon will surround you with music as you learn the dances from the renowned Jeremy Caviness and his Elite Feet Dancers.

“It is amazing to watch how music and learning new dances can unite such a diverse group of attendees,” said Anne Marie Eckart, Medieval Fair Coordinator. “Many new friendships are formed by the end of the evening.”

Neither partner nor experience needed. Medieval and renaissance costumes are always encouraged but optional (no weapons, costume or otherwise, allowed).

Tickets are limited and are $40 in advance or $45 at the door – only if any tickets remain.

This project is made possible in part by Republic Bank & Trust (
