Event Highlights:

Craft Beer Extravaganza:

  • Immerse yourself in the flavors of the Renaissance with a new and limited “Brag About It” Braggot Ale release: a special mead-inspired beer, partially fermented with honey and conditioned on blueberry and chipotle peppers. Cider fans can enjoy sipping on Sly Dry Cider, which is reminiscent of an apple wine, or for a sweeter option, try one of the deliciously fruited ciders that Stable Craft offers on tap, like white peach or blackberry. 

Renaissance Inspired Market Stalls:

  • Stroll through the bustling market stalls offering an eclectic mix of handcrafted wares, live smithing demonstrations, and spellbinding services. Local vendors will showcase their talents, adding to the vibrant atmosphere of the festival.

Live Entertainment:

  • Enjoy live performances by fire eaters, sword swallowers, and other talented entertainers who will transport you to a world of revelry and magic. A main stage will host a variety of acts, ensuring a day filled with laughter and awe.

Costumes Welcome:

  • Let your creativity shine as you embody the spirit of the Renaissance with costumes and peace-tied weapons. Any non-peace tied weaponry will need to be stored in your vehicle.

Family-Friendly Activities:

  • Bring the whole family for a day of fun with activities such as face painting, interactive games, and educational experiences that showcase the fascinating history of the Renaissance period.

Gastronomic Delights:

  • Indulge in a feast fit for a king or queen with a delectable array of food options, ranging from hearty fare to sweet treats. Savor the flavors of the Renaissance with an emphasis on locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.

Renaissance Inspired Steal the Glass:

  • Don't miss a special Renaissance themed "All About the Mace" Steal the Glass starting at 12pm! Purchase any beverage & take home THIS glass while supplies last.
