What:

If you have never attended a Renaissance festival you are missing out!  There is so much to do and see.  Age of Chivalry is set up around the lake at Sunset park.  There are a couple different sections to check out and see while you are there like guilds, shows, shopping and food!

One side of the lake is where most of the guild encampments are set up.  Guild’s are themed costume groups who camp out at the fair and are part of the story line.  There is the royalty of the fair where the queen and king are set up, there are pirates and mermaids,  faeries and mythical creatures, belly dancers, the Wilds, the Vikings and even Romans.  They all have their own setups and some of them even let you into their encampments for interactive shows, fights, storytelling, show you the wares they make and sell and much more.

The second part of the grounds is where they set up all the vendors.   There are tons of vendors that sell everything from weapons, to costumes, to trinkets, to family genealogies.  The vendor area is situated right next to the food vendor area.  There are all sorts of delicious treats and drinks to partake in.  You can find massive turkey legs, funnel cakes, deep fried foods, Thai food, burgers, fries, kebabs, and the list goes on.  There are also alcoholic libations.

The next section of the fair is the stadium where all the fights and jousting matches take place.  You can sit and watch as the crazy people beat each other up and fight for the victory.  Throughout the fair grounds there are about 4 or 5 stages.  All the stages have different performances from bands, to jugglers, magicians, belly dancing, acting, storytelling and even some amazing animal shows.  Our very favorite show that we catch every year at the fair is Adam the Bawdy Juggler.  It is a bit raunchy in nature, hence the title of the show, but he is so talented and hysterical.  I definitely recommend catching his show.

A lot of people who are not part of the fair dress up to partake in the fun.  You can buy costume pieces at the fair, but that can be pretty pricey.  I suggest for a first time attendee to check out Savers and Goodwill and piece together a costume.  Ebay and Amazon also have some good pieces.  If your costume has a weapon involved it must be peace tied so you can not open it while inside.

Beginning last year, they offered a camping option.  We have never done that, but you pay for a spot where you can set up your own tent and basically stay at the fair all weekend.  We go every day and buy the weekend pass.  It is nice because you have a wristband that lets you go in and out of the fair.  If you buy a regular one day ticket, once you leave the fair you can’t go back in without paying to enter again.  The event is all ages, but it can get crazy at night time with all the people drinking.  All in all it’s a fun time for all ages.  You never know what you will see and experience.  Check it out at least once.

I will post some pictures of costumes from past fairs.  I realize I don’t have a lot of pictures of the fair itself but I will try to get some this year.

    Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, superb blog!

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking
    what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?
    :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the
    theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching
    for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

      Hello there! I used the Bard theme for my blog. Your site looks nice! I didn’t have any problems with it. I hope you and yours are well through all this craziness.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any
    tips or suggestions? With thanks

    • Spencer

      Hello! I didn’t find it difficult to set up. My site is set up through 1&1 and WordPress. If you don’t want to have to set it up on your own and pay to host your site, I have been told that Blogger is really easy and nice to use. I also believe it is free. https://www.blogger.com/about/ I hope that info is helpful!

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

      Hello! :] I am glad you are enjoying my blog. I didn’t know if anyone actually read my stuff so its fun to hear someone does. I guess my tip would be to write about things you enjoy, make a list of topics you know a lot about or are passionate about and go from there. Obviously my blog has all sorts of random topics and ideas, but you could always stick to one topic you really enjoy. What do you think you would want to blog about? Be sure to include pictures and video, it makes the reader feel more involved. I would just like to state that I am no professional when it comes to blogging. I am just doing my own thing and if people see it and love it great. Just have fun and enjoy the process.
