Looking for a family fun-filled event to attend this weekend? Have you ever considered going to a renaissance fair with your family or friends? Well, if you haven’t been to any of these events, you’re definitely missing out on a lot. Here is what you need to know about a renaissance fair and how to prepare adequately for it.
What Is A Renaissance Fair?
If you have a passion of the medieval times, a renaissance fair allows you to enjoy it in real-time. Here, you will find actors in costumes, games and also other crafts you can enjoy with your friends or family. The event planners try as much as possible to be historically accurate and bring the medieval times alive to the passionate audience.
How To Prepare For One
Besides watching the costumed actors, you’re also allowed to participate in the games and craft-making processes at the fair. Some of the activities include jousting, acrobatics, storytelling, dances, magic, music, dancing and much more. So, if you don’t want to miss out on such an eventful day with your family, here are a few tips to help you prepare adequately for the event.
If you want to attend the event without any issues, you need to buy your tickets in advance. Depending on your location or that of the event, the prices of tickets for both adults and children will vary. If possible, get your tickets online and keep them ready for the event. Certainly, you don’t want to be purchasing your tickets on the entrance since you might be charged more. Even better, by purchasing them in advance, you might get a few discounts.
If you don’t want to miss out on anything, you need to arrive early. For the early birds, parking is free but you might be charged some parking fee if the available space is full. Remember, many people arrive for these events, so you need to arrive as early as possible.
Some attendees might decide to wear renaissance costume, whether historically correct or not, but it’s not mandatory. The simple rule about dressing is that you should be comfortable. Keep in mind that the whole event happens in the outdoors when the weather is dusty and hot. Therefore, don’t dress in clothes that will make you uncomfortable forcing you to leave early.
With these tips in mind, your day at the renaissance fair should be memorable!
