Renaissance Faires Across the U.S.A.

Museums

RENAISSANCE FAIRES ACROSS THE USA This is a composite list of renaissance faires with approximate dates and one information contact phone number. As in the original renaissance, schedules and locations change, so be sure to contact the faire number, the local chamber of commerce or the local visitors bureau to confirm and get details. Also, different faires reflect different time periods, places or styles. Have fun! And, if you can, dress in period costume to greatly increase your enjoyment and to help a little in understanding what life - and a faire - was like 'way back then.'
