About Philadelphia Renaissance Faire
The Pirates invade as Fort Mifflin transforms into a world of whimsy, fantasy, and fun at the Philadelphia Renaissance Faire. Spread across two Spring weekends, this year's faire features more festivities than you can shake a stick (or lance, or turkey leg) at, so here's a handy guide to getting the most out of this trip back through time...or as the knights would call it, "tyme."
- The Mirth: Enter the Kangaroo Court of Lord High Sheriff Marshall Laww, where the audience plays jury to a tastefully bawdy mockery of Renaissance justice, and make sure to gawk/wince at "Master of (Somewhat) Controlled Disaster" Doug Stafford's sideshow antics, which might entail juggling knives while balanced on a see-saw, or using fire as an alternate means of hair removal
- The Performers: Performance acts this year include Irish rockers The Jackdaws, comedian singing group Chaste Treasure, The Magic of Daniel Greenwolf, Interactive Improv with the Dungeon Palz, and more.
- The Food: In addition to turkey legs, the grounds also serve up old-timey European favorites like ribs, pork, beef and prime rib from Lord Lumpy's BBQ, plus roasted corn, and perhaps some beer or mead to wash it down
- The Merchants Dozens of artisans and merchants offer cool toys and trinkets for purchase, some of which you can watch being made firsthand. Expect traditional jewelry-makers as well as sewers who create the Renaissance-style clothing and wears for the home. And if you've ever wanted to buy a sword and shield, this is the place.
