June 10th & 11th 2017
|*Throughout the Year||*Forms and Applications|
Welcome all ye who are young in years or at heart. We do seek thy presence at the task of being educated. We promise thou wilt find more fun than tedium.
At the festival we offer a children's realm that allows free interactive play and learning. Thou mayst find a petting zoo with sundry animals (for a nominal fee). Young mercenaries may train with the Royal Guard to greet the Queen. As thou pass the gates thou mayst choose to join a scavenger hunt to aquaint thyself with those personages who inhabit the festival. Crafts to keep young fingers busy will be available.
For those of more sophisticated tastes, an education stage may feature anything from a dispay of renaissance weapons and the garb of the period to cuttings of Shakespear's fyne works. In addition as thou walketh the festival thou wilt become aquainted with the nobles of England of the year 1575. Thou mayst find our court sitting down to sup together, cheering our jousters, touring the mythical garden or dancing on the legendary Towle Dancing Green.
While our festival does not encourage the widespread attendance of fantasy creatures, we have captured a few that thou mayst meet in our mythical garden. Watch for tour times to find the widest number of them.
Fun and educational monthly meetings are open to anyone who wish to attend. They occur the 3rd Saturday of the month from September through May excepting December and February. Check Events page for exact location and topics. Topics have ranged from: trade guilds, to renaissance portrayals in movies, to histories of specific characters.
Specific trainings take place in the spring months for those who wish to become re-enactors. They range from: "Rennie 101" for beginners and "Teen Rennie 101" for teen and young adult beginners to Character Training for anyone interested in developing a stronger persona. When there is interest we provide dance classes and short theatre cutting experiences. Costume advice is also available with expressed interest.
