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 Queen Elizabeth I and her 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.
