Something strange happens as soon someone steps through the gates outside of Camlann Medieval Village. The past seven centuries of human existence instantly disappear, and that same person—who once existed in a world of smart phones and talking fire hydrants—now finds his or herself in living history museum of the medieval era. A narrow street winds through a rural village, where villagers make their artisanal goods in full view.

Another attraction inside Camlann Medieval Village is The Bors Hede Inne Restaurant, which keeps its doors open year-round. An innkeeper greets guests and welcomes them into the dining room, which is usually warmed by a roaring fireplace. There, glasses of mead accompany rotating monthly entrees made using authentic recipes right out of the 14th century.

As the go-to source for Americana and roots music, No Depression magazine curates its own festival to showcase both well-established and up-and-coming folk acts. This year's festival is headlined by the dulcet Dublin tones of The Swell Season, consisting of Irish musician Glen Hansard and Czech singer and pianist Markéta Irglová, who starred together in the Academy Award–winning 2007 indie-musical Once. Other acts include acclaimed singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams, Seattle indie-folk rockers The Cave Singers, and Alejandro Escovedo—winner of No Depression ’s "artist of the decade" for the '90s. Tickets are general admission, so arrive when the gates open at noon to secure a close-up spot on Marymoor Park's two enormous grass lawns, ensuring that the artists can pointedly ignore your request that they play the entire score of The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Having tamed Redman's farmers'-market frontier with their patented brand of slapstickery, the script spurners of Split 2nd Improv now tend to hatching a twice-weekly staging of off-the-cuff comedy. Like snowflakes or facial tattoos, no two of the audience-directed shows are the same. Friday nights are rated PG-13, suitable for tickling family funny bones, and Saturdays paint the stage blue in adult humor. Track the ever-shifting feature players on Facebook, and bring your blank screenplay for them to autograph.
