Folsom Renaissance Faire returns this weekend

Lords and ladies, knights and court jesters will mingle with visitors this weekend on Oct. 19-20 at Folsom’s Lion’s Park. Over 900 costumed entertainers, dozens of food vendors as well as more than 100 shopkeepers and artisans will be on hand to give the feel of an Elizabethan marketplace.

Renaissance Productions will welcome an approximate crowd of 5,000 during the weekend. Visitors will be treated to an immersion experience by dressing in period dress, partaking in marketplace food and drink and enjoying the entertainment offered throughout the faire.

Renaissance costumes

Guests are welcome to come in period garb and enjoy turkey legs, other delicious food and maybe an English ale or two. Much fanfare is expected from performers, and attendees can also participate in dancing, fencing, archery and other events. Children activities will include games, crafts, storytelling and many other hands-on activities. Live entertainment will include dancers, jugglers, singers, actors, magicians, roaming wizards and elves. The fair is a family-friendly event and performers always make an effort to include lads and lassies in their performances and hands-on activities.

High court costume

Besides the traditional Renaissance-themed events, games and performances, the Folsom Faire introduces guests to full-contact jousting. Imperial Knights will vie for supremacy in full costume as they ride their majestic horses to battle.

The Folsom Renaissance Faire also serves the Folsom community. Proceeds from the fair and some of the booths will benefit the Folsom CAVE Teen Centers. CAVE offers after-school supervised recreational activities for Folsom’s middle school students.
