The 2023 NorCal Renn Faire returns this year through October 22nd.

The event brings to life a village during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England, complete with period costumes, refreshments, and entertainment. Watch the knights jousting, Shakespearean-style performers, sword swallowing, live music, and other entertainment. Old-world handcrafts will be on sale at the fair.

Try Renaissance-era activities including challenges and tests of strength. These include archery, axe and knife throwing, javelin, and darts. Schools of juggling and fencing will operate—as well as tarot card readers. And, children especially are likely to enjoy the carousel and petting zoo.

Attendees are encouraged to dress thematically—but it is unnecessary if you don’t have a costume. There will be booths to purchase costumes and accessories, get your hair braided, and even rent a costume during your stay.
