22d Vahalla Renaissance Faire

The 22d Vahalla Renaissance Faire will launch at Camp Richardson on two upcoming weekends. The Faire will start it's two weekend run on Saturday, May 31 and Sunday June 1.

The second weekend begins on Saturday June 7 and end on Sunday, June 8. There is a bit of a difference in the two dates.

The first weekend will have more for little ones, although it's pretty hard to tell the difference between the two weekends. There's just too much fun going on for everyone. Everything starts at 10:00 a.m.

First things first. Leave your dog at home. No dogs are allowed anywhere at the Faire.

You'll find that there is enough food to make you wish you had a large take home basket. The food runs the gamut from light goodies to entire turkey legs. It's a little known bit of the Faire, but it is a huge gastronomic event. The variety of food offerings is staggering.

Over the 7 acres that the Faire occupies, you'll see tents of the middle ages style, 4 stages presenting plays and skits, about 1,000 or so actors making it seem like you really have stepped into a time warp, ending up in a very different place.

Knights jousting, with some pretty realistic lance splitting hits, and sword fights help with that illusion. Wandering minstrels, jugglers, artists, magicians all add to the overall feel of being a few hundred years removed from the present day. Plan on being very busy and very amused all day and into the night.

The costumes alone are worth the trip. While it isn't necessary to dress up for this event, it's a very good excuse to get out there in fine Monty Python style with your wardrobe. Why not? It's the perfect place to play dress up.

Go early, as parking is always a problem. Mind the speed limit. It will be strictly enforced.
