The ninth annual Mayfaire Renaissance Festival draws visitors back in time on the weekends of May 19–20 and May 26–28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. The festival's vast wooded expanses teem with swordsmen, jesters, and dancers delighting crowds on four stages of continuous entertainment. The royal guard performs full-contact fighting shows with real swords, and the king and queen wander the grounds in search of oil for the guillotine. Visitors can stroll through ye ole shoppes, where dozens of shopkeepers peddle handcrafted leather and jewelry and wooden swords and shields.
Mayfaire Renaissance Festival
Each year at the onset of summer, the costumed bards, knights, and royalty at Mayfaire Renaissance Festival welcome visitors to enjoy rollicking entertainment and peruse handcrafted wares throughout the wooded festival grounds. Attendees step into a world of jousters and jesters, replete with Renaissance-era songs and dances and smartphones fashioned from mutton. All-ages-appropriate comedians regale families with zany antics, and visitors can ask mystical tarot-card readers questions about the future.
