It’s time for the days of old, when knights (and their ladies) were bold—in other words, it’s the Renaissance Pleasure Faire! The Master of the Revels at this Faire in Port Deptford has searched for many fine things for young subjects to do. Those of fewer summers shall have opportunity to create beautiful crafts, have great fun with games & rides, be entertained with fabulous stage shows (some are brand new, like Green Eggs & Hamlet and Ye Olde Tale of Good King Arthur), and be knighted by the King at the children’s knighting ceremony!
Admission to the original Renaissance Faire includes all entertainment: the Joust, 4 parades, over 2,000 performers, music, dance, interactive living history exhibits, craft demonstrations and the battle pageant. Select lessons, activities and pageants for children are also included. Bring the whole family! (Kids under 4 are free, and be sure to check the website for discounts and savings.) Each weekend has a different theme, from Time Travel to Pirates to Cosplay to Scouts, so check to see which appeals to your family the most.
