The Loyal Order of Re-enactment Enthusiasts (LORE) is organized around an education goal. The purpose of the organization is to provide the means for history enthusiasts, educators and students to develop or expand their skills and background in various aspects of history.
To educate the general public in the history, legends, arts, inventions and skills of the peoples and cultures from ancient times by holding workshops. LORE encourages reading and creative projects in history through outreach programs to libraries, schools and other venues.
LORE hosts “LORE Education Weekends” which provide an opportunity for re-enactors and the public to work with other knowledgeable re-enactors and professionals in an instructional setting. These weekends include:
LORE will encourage students to read and learn history through our “Knights of the Fabled Reader” and “Great Minds Project” programs.
Elementary students will be required to read 5 books and have an Authorized Initial signed on a form listing the books read and a short book report on one of the books. Students are rewarded with a free ticket for themselves and one adult to Koroneburg Festival. They will be knighted at the Koroneburg Festival and given one Historical bookmark, a pin, and a certificate of recognition for their accomplishment.
As part of this program, dedicated re-enactors from LORE can present historical events bringing history to life at schools, libraries or other venues.

Renaissance Immersion Weekend
The purpose of the LORE Renaissance Immersion Weekend is to further the educational purpose of LORE by providing useful and interesting classes on the culture and everyday life of people in the European Renaissance. The secondary purpose of this event is to prepare newer re-enactors on what they need to know to participate in the Koroneburg Renaissance Festival, and provide continuing education for experienced re-enactors who would like to learn more.
