Renaissance Faires 2011 – Top 10 Reasons to Attend

Every year thousands of fans attend Renaissance Faires and Renaissance Festivals around the world. Here are top 10 reasons to attend a Ren Faire this year.

1. Theater – Renaissance Faires usually have a few stages set up with actors performing Shakespearian skits or re-enacting popular medieval plays.

2. Performances - Medieval faires include a variety of entertaining performances such as jousting, tournaments, dancers, musicians, storytellers, and much more.

3. Costumes - Renaissance Faire workers, vendors and patrons dress up in beautiful, traditional medieval costumes. Keep an eye out and spot people dressed as kings, queens, knights, and wizards.

4. Shopping - The faires have many unique vendors selling everything from jewelry, to pottery, to artwork, to weaponry. There are usually a few vendors devoted to selling hard to find Renaissance style clothing and medieval costumes. For those that want to arrive to the Ren Faire in medieval armor, www.medievalcostumesandgifts.com

5. Artisan Demonstrations - Most faires also have artisan demonstrations of weaving, leather crafting, wood carving, Renaissance painting, coin minting, glass blowing, spinning, and sculpting. The artisans offer entertainment and then sell their goods to the crowds.

6. Booth Games – Booth games are designed to match the medieval activities of past eras including axe throwing, harvest basket toss, fencing, archery, javelins, and fishing wells.

7. Rides - The rides include giant swings, rock climbing, mazes, slides, medieval themed carousels and just about any type of classic carnival ride you can think of with a renaissance twist.

8. Food - These Medieval Festivals are also famous for the food they serve. There is usually a vast array of food vendors. The feasts are designed to resemble the foods of King Arthur’s time, such as turkey legs, brats, spuds, corn, and lots of fried food. The food is usually served in the large portions that we associate with the medieval era.

9. Museums - Some of the larger faires also have wonderful little museums set up for the event. The medieval displays are wonderful to look at and there are usually medieval replicas that are available for sale.

10. Family Friendly – Renaissance Faires are family friendly events. The rides and games provide a whole day of entertainment for children of all ages and the performances and shops will keep the adults entertained.

We are Medieval Costumes and Gifts and are a medieval décor oriented business based in San Diego California. Our establishment came from an approach of a whole new type of career path. We knew our current paths of working for big business corporations in sales and finance were not our career destinies. We wanted a greater sense of personal accomplishment and ownership in a career. It was July of 2010 when our ideas struck along with some very helpful determination. We knew that great products at great prices were essential to help build a business. We began selling some of our medieval items at events and gained great experience with our customers. From there we grew our product base, learned from our experiences, and eventually created our own website.

Currently we are enjoying the growth of our business focusing attention on our online company www.MedievalCostumesandGifts.com. We are consistently expanding our product line to bring our committed customers new and unique items. We have a large variety of medieval decor items that would look great in your home. Our products make wonderful gifts and costumes, they are more unusual and rare than what you could find in the average retail store. As always, we keep our prices super competitive.
