San Jose Renaissance Faire

If you’ve ever wanted to go back in time, but didn’t have access to a wormhole, San Jose Renaissance Faire is your next best bet. This annual festival showcases a reimagined Renaissance, complete with a royal court, Master Shakespeare, storytellers, fairies, a hard-hitting armored joust, and a town full of colorful characters. This lost era contains a vast labyrinth of nooks and crannies, from merchants proffering ye olde turkey legs to shops stocked with leather wears and carved tankards. Live shows take place on three stages and feature the Barleycorn Dancers, the Bard's Cloak of Tales, as well as Stark Ravens. And no visit to Elizabethan England is complete without seeing the queen, who may also make the occasional appearance to knight a brave warrior or banish a dragon from the realm.

Go early in the morning and bring an umbrella and blanket for sitting on the lawn to enjoy lunch

If you go to the Renaissance Faire, dress up!!! It is so much more fun when you go dressed up! Also, talk to everyone! The people there are so friendly and it really feels like you have gone back in time. Such a great experience!

It was a great experience. I wish it had been easier to locate as it is held essentially in the shadow of the Hwy 87 overpass of The Alameda (or E Santa Clara) and is toward the SAP Center and not toward downtown. Thanks for a wonderful experience! Everyone was extremely nice and courteous to all around including all of the vendors
