September 26th and 27th
Ives Park, Sebastopol, CA
Welcome to the 6th annual Much Ado About Sebastopol Renaissance Faire. Join us and be transported to the Heart of the English countryside in 1578 and the feast of St. Michael (Michaelmas) - when rents are due, wages are paid, and the crops have been gathered and stored for the coming Winter. It's time for the people of Fenford to relax and enjoy some well-earned recreation, while giving thanks for a bountiful harvest. Queen Elizabeth, after a day of hunting will join the revels of her loving subjects, and be entertained in their lusty, country fashion.
Wander our streets and interact with the population of our imaginary Tudor village. Indulge in fine food, local brews and wine. Observe displays of martial skill while listening to a wandering minstrel. Enjoy some ice cold lemonade while watching our birds of prey and learning about their role in Renaissance farming. Sit back and take in a short Shakespeare performance or peruse the skillfully handcrafted wares offered by local artisans.
It is truly a celebration not to be missed!
