The Northern California Renaissance Faire

The Northern California Renaissance FaireTravel back in time to a thriving Renaissance village under the rule of Queen Elizabeth the First! The Northern California Renaissance Faire is a 21-acre wonderland brimming with festivities. With live music, themed celebrations, hearty food, and a thriving marketplace of unique hand-crafted goods, this is an unforgettable experience.

The marketplace of master artisans offers the latest designs and finest handwork in blown glass, keen blades, armor and chain mail, romantic clothing, leather-work, woodwork, hand-wrought jewelry, sculpture and more. Stop to play a game of darts, sip an ale or sink your teeth into delicious fare while perusing the fine crafts displayed throughout the shire. Then, sit, relax and watch a show on one of the beautiful stages or interact with some of the locals before heading on. NorCal Ren Faire is renowned for its legendary full-contact joust, which takes place each day in the World Tournament of Champions Arena.

You are welcome to arrive in contemporary clothing, but if you wish to fully immerse yourself in the complete faire experience, wear a costume of your own, rent one just inside the gates, or purchase some new finery to take home from one of the merchants. From classic Renaissance attire to saucy pirate gear to gypsy tribal garb, there is a huge selection of unique handcrafted clothing, jewelry, and accessories that you won’t find in your average shopping mall.
