20190706_134702 The yard of the Onogurs
The sign above the hut says "Onogurų genties kiemas IX a" -- the yard of an Onogur tribe from the 9th century. The Onogurs, according to Wikipedia, were Turkic nomadic equestrians (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ono%C4%9Furs). The re-enactors were from Hungary.
We caught a performance of a Hungarian folk music band Kajan. Oddly enough, I couldn't find any information about them on the internet. I found an Ukrainian band also called Kajan, but it's definitely not a folk band.
Days of Living Archeology in Kernave (a place on the outskirts of Vilnius) resemble a Renaissance faire, but with its own Lithuanian specifics. Inside the festival grounds there aren't anywhere near as many vendors as at a typical American Ren faire, but many more exhibits. The exhibits are live, in the sense that they are reenactments of life in the Middle Ages (and before); they have people in them dressed in period clothes (sometimes that means animal skins), doing things that people from that time period did in their daily life.
I actually liked this festival better than American Ren faires, because the commercial aspect is smaller, and the educational aspect more prominent. It features demonstrations of traditional crafts -- leatherworking, spinning, weaving, beekeeping, blacksmithing, making of traditional music instruments, and many others.
The festival has several music stages and many food and drink vendors. Most vendors are stationed outside the festival grounds on a street leading to the gate. They sell all sorts of stuff, from artisanal cheeses and smoked meats to ethnic clothing, pottery and knicknacks; there are plenty of stuff for kids, such as wooden swords and shields. So overall, the commercial aspect is definitely there, it's just kept mostly outside the festival perimeter.
