Event Spotlight: Renaissance Pleasure Faire

Travel back in time to the golden age of fully-armed jousting, decadent food, and rejuvenating music at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire! As the first modern renaissance faire to occur in America in 1963, this event has grown into an annual interactive playground and gallery for over 200,000 attendees. It has given birth to an industry nationwide, and this year is more exciting than ever. With 13 stages featuring a variety of entertainment across 20 acres of pure fun, Southern California’s Renaissance Pleasure Faire is filled with arts and crafts, fine spirits, dancing, parades, rides, games, royalty, and more. This is one event faire-goers won’t want to miss!

Experience Mind-Blowing Performances

Every Saturday and Sunday from April 7 to May 20, 2018, attendees will enjoy a rotating cast of exceptional performances. Watch the world catch fire with Aaron Bonk as he risks his life to amaze his fans with matches, whips, swords, and fire, all while keeping up his twisted sense of humor. Bring your drum and bang, clap, stomp, whistle, dance, and shout along with Seraphim Arabesque Ensemble and The Queen’s Percussion Ensemble as they shake the ground they stand on. And, new to this year, catch the heroic feats and incredible stunts of Kevin Armour, the devilishly handsome daredevil who showcases his skills of balancing, tumbling, and acro-arts with a continuous stream of wry humor.

Enjoy Human-Powered Artisans, Games, and Rides

Spanning across acres of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire is every classic booth, shop, and activity you could think of! Take aim at the archery station, soar across the lands with BEE Zip Lines, make furry friends at the petting zoo, and so much more! Then, support your local artisans by perusing their products, including everything from jewelry, to perfumes, to incense, to musical instruments, and beyond. You can even embrace the occult by getting a psychic reading, visiting Soothsayer Share, and testing out the new Blue Moon Readings. These are only a small fraction of all the cool activities jam-packed into this event, so be sure to check out the full official list!
