Originated in 1963 to create a living history for schoolchildren and their families, the Original Renaissance Faire has grown into an annual event that hosts more than 200,000 participants. The faire is comprised of 20 acres of entertainment, including 13 stages of various shows and comedies, jousting tournaments and the Queen and her glittering court. Guests can partake in true Renaissance activities, such as arts and crafts, delicious foods and spirits, music, dance, rides, and games. Many who attend come dressed in time-period costumes and, though not required, it certainly enhances the magic. Entertainment this year will feature several new and exciting shows like Acrobatix, a crowd-pleasing two-person comedy circus guaranteed to be high energy and highly memorable. Aerial dancers, action theater, featured characters and stage shows are just a fraction of the cultural diversity you will find.
