Medieval Times Community Preview

The newest tenant of Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community’s entertainment district, the Medieval Times, opened its doors to the public in August. But before the opening, a preview was given to Community member elders, youth, tribal government staff and SRPMIC enterprise staff on July 29.

The facility, which is built like a castle, is located off Loop 101 and Via Ventura Road, not far from Salt River Fields.

During the preview, fans cheered for their favorite knights. The main event showcased epic battles and dynamic performances between knights and horsemanship and falconry. The event is based on history from the 11th century.

Battles erupted for the queens championship during the show. Victor Gonzales was knighted by the queen.
The Salt River location is the tenth facility to open. The entertainment restaurant also includes a giftshop, snack bar and mini museum.

The facility is decorated in medieval decor from ceiling to floor with an arena where guests are seated around. The meal includes tomato soup, a half chicken, corn and garlic bread on metal bowls and plates. Utensils were not given and guests are encouraged to use their hands to eat the food served to them.

Epic battles of steel took place between the red knight and green knight.
A grand opening is planned for early September.
