For 18 years, the valiant knights, crafty knaves, gracious ladies, and bawdy wenches of Clark County Parks and Recreation have whisked festival-goers back to Renaissance times. A three-day schedule melds historical reenactments, jousting tournaments, and pageantry with the wares of more 200 vendors peddling handcrafted treasures and leather-bound everything. The entertainment guide lists must-see performances, including colorfully costumed minstrels and musicians, daring knife- or fire-jugglers, fearless jousters on decorated warhorses, and scurvy pirates and their talkative parrot companions. In the vendors area, browse gold and silver jewelry, sparkling stained glass, authentic costumes, heady perfumes, handmade pottery, and battle-ready swords and armor. Food vendors sate appetites with meat pies, bangers and mash, and other traditional Renaissance fare. Re-entry is prohibited to prevent knights from fetching modern technology to settle old scores, thus altering history forever.
