Colorado Renaissance Festival 2014 cometh soon!

See also

It is almost that time, when a quiet little area in Colorado suddenly comes to life after a winter of silence with the shouts and cheers and even jeers of ye auld Renaissance Fair! The Colorado Renaissance festival is, by far, one of the best renaissance fairs that this biased author has seen--and it is just a few days away! An easy day trip from the Denver area, you will want to enjoy this summer long event!

Celebrating its 38th season, the festival is introducing several new acts and entertainment, that even vets to the fair will enjoy seeing for the first time. Such new acts include the much anticipated Kamikazi Fireflies, "an acrobatic duo that performs dazzling and unique tricks in a mesmerizing and energetic show!" A couple other exciting new-comers are a falconry show and Johnny Fox, a sword swallower and magician!

And of course, the regular acts and favorite crowd pleasers will be back!

The fair never fails to provide something for everyone and is therefore perfect for both adults and children. With everything from comedy acts like the Washing Well Wenches (love these ladies!), to musical acts (like the amazing and chilling Carillon Bells and traditional celtic music bands), to activities for children, such as archery, and so much more. Artisans and merchants abound, meaning those keen for shopping will find more than enough jewlery, art, woodwork, and other goods up for sale. Eat like King Henry and enjoy a turkey leg and a glass of mulberry mead--or you can opt for other equally tasty fare.

Your day is not done till you catch a glimpse of the King and Queen themselves attending the jousting match. Be sure to cheer on your knight as the match gets a little personal between the proud warriors.

Dress for the part! Boasting hundreds of individuals romping around the streets in renaissance garb, the fair attracts both professionals and amature enthusiasts alike, who can join in and build the ambiance of stepping back into ye aulden days.
