Renaissance Pleasure Faire 2019

Revelry reigns at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire Saturdays and Sundays April 6 through May 19, just minutes from Pasadena! Enjoy fantasy, feasting, and shenanigans aplenty at the 56th annual Renaissance Pleasure Faire! Multiple stages feature a wide array of world-class entertainment, packed into 20 gorgeous acres at the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area in Irwindale.

Save the Date for Cosplay, Theme Weekends, and Special Events

If you’re looking for an even more niche experience, plan your trip around the theme weekend of your choice. Show off your Time Traveler attire April 13 or 14, celebrate Cosplay in all its forms during RennCon™ Weekend April 27 and 28, or participate in one of the many other themes. There’s also Scouts Weekend (May 4 and 5) and children twelve and under are admitted free on Easter!  

Pub Crawl and Fyne Food

If you find yourself a bit thirsty, you’ll not only have the opportunity to spend all day in the Faire enjoying the food and sights, you’ll also be able to laugh and sing your way through a tour of the faire’s finest pubs! Participants receive a beverage at each new location. Pub Crawl tickets sell out quickly so be sure to reserve yours today! Hungry? You’ll also find something that hits the spot whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or omnivore!

Experience Awe-inspiring Performances 

All season long, attendees of this thrilling faire will enjoy a rotating cast of exceptional entertainment. Learn your own exciting illusions at Brandon Scott’s Wonder School of Magic, and listen as the Wizard of Wonder himself delights you with his Storytelling Magic. Hop on the tragicomic, tongue-tying rollercoaster that is Green Eggs and Hamlet, an unusual yet hilarious mix of Shakespeare and Dr. Seuss. And, new to this year, you’ll enjoy a “cup of tea” at the Tea & Strumpets Tea House as you sing and dance along with the rowdiest band stage show of the year. Plus, the faire even offers ASL interpreters for deaf and hard-of-hearing guests, so people from the deaf and hearing communities alike can enjoy everything this fantastic event has to offer!

Human-Powered Rides, Fun, and Games

Spanning across the entirety of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire is every classic booth, shop, and activity you can think of! Test your strength with axe throwing, try to stay afoot in the bubble rollers, take aim with Earth darts, and much more! Then, support your local artisans by perusing their wares including glass, jewelry, fine art, wood, metals, and beyond. You can even barter for some unique crafted items at the Trader’s Market. These are only a small portion of all the interesting activities jam-packed into the faire, so be sure to check out the full official list!
