The Shire of Starleaf Gate

The Shire of Starleaf Gate tries to bring the medieval way to life in modern times. From clothing to utensils we strive to educate in a fun environment.



The Shire of Starleaf Gate has been in Windsor since 1986. Originally started at the University of Windsor, our Shire has grown and changed into the wonderful group of volunteers we have today.  The shire of Starleaf gate is a non-profit organization in the Windsor Ontario area whose members are dedicated to promote an awareness of and appreciation for our medieval heritage. We conduct living history presentations on a small scale for schools and, on a large scale for outdoors-public venues. Our Members portray medieval lifestyles dating from late 700 AD to 1600 AD. Our displays include clothing, weapons, armor, fiber arts, calligraphy, illumination, household goods and much more.
The success of our presentations depends heavily on the volunteer work of our members. We hope you can come out and join us.
