Renaissance Faire and Festival Information

All across the USA

This is the latest update on Renaissance Faires and Festivals around the country. Check your state for the faire or festival near you. These colorful events tend to be held in the same month each year, but the actual day they begin and end always changes by a few days. To give you the best possible information, the month of each faire and festival is shown here, along with a link to their sites. As dates are updated or changed, the latest information will always be available on the individual sites. Check back here before you go, to get the latest info.

By the way, the names "faire" and "festival" mean the same thing, it's just a matter of style. And when an entry says "a major faire" that means more than 100,000 people go to it each time it is held. The underlined name of each faire is a link to their website for any additional details you may need.

Society for Creative Anachronism

This society is active all year around with costumed Medieval events that include feasts, revelry and tournements. These "kingdoms" cover the whole world, so wherever you live there are events near you. And you don't need to be a member to go to events.

See more about the society here.


Medieval History, Crusades and Knights Templar

We have picked out some of the more fascinating people and events of the Middle Ages and include them here. The actual beginning of the Crusades dates back to 325 AD and a woman named St. Helena. Later the Templars became wealthy by introducing bank checks to Europe, but could not have done it without the literate brothers among them who wore green robes with the red cross. Strange but true.

See intriguing Medieval history here.
