Bay Area Renaissance Festival
The Bay Area Renaissance Festival doesn’t obey the rules of the outside world. Instead, they bring the 16th century back in vivid tapestry-color—and though the celebration only lasts a few short weeks, the festival has become a beloved local tradition.
Step through the gates, and explore a recreated Renaissance-era setting. Nearby shops host more than 100 artisans, selling wares such as metal sculptures or lavish costumes. Tavern owners roast turkey legs over open flames, while entertainers continuously weave throughout the streets and perform on 12 stages. Comedy, music, and full-contact jousting unfolds to the delight of the crowd, which may even include Queen Elizabeth herself, assuming she remembers where she put her horse keys.
