The Renaissance Pleasure Faire

 

 Irwindale, CA

 

Booth #TBD

 

10am - 7pm

 

 

We were invited to participate for two weekends this year as guest artists at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire. If you've been to the faire before, you know what a fun and immersive environment it is. For those of you that have never been, here is a quick definition:

 

 A Renaissance Faire is held to recreate the arts and history of the Renaissance. Generally held outside and on weekends faires offer all things Renaissance, and many things other. They usually happen during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I but time periods vary from 1300 to 1800.

 

They are usually set in England, but many be different countries such as Scotland, France.Faires offer lots of entertainment, from games to swordfighting and Shakespeare to comedy and magic.

 

Faires are also known for their costumes. Entertainers and Vendors are almost always dressed in costumes (called 'Garb') that are nearly historically accurate for their character. Many patrons dress in ‘period garb’ but there are also many costumes that are seen at all fairs, no matter how historically inaccurate. Pirates Fairies and Bellydancers are always present. Often, people dress as Fantasy characters, though some fairs do not encourage this. You find wizards, magicians, steampunk, lord of the rings, video game characters, and even occasional Klingons.

 

Renaissance Faires are also known for their handcrafted items on sale. A faire will have many booths with vendors selling everything from swords to jewelry to herbs to costumes.Fairs are also known for their food and drink. Most faires will have various ales, meads, beers, and beverages, as well as common soda. They may have a few historically accurate specialty items (turkey leg), but most have general festival food. (hotdogs, hamburgers, potatoes, funnel cakes.
