Medieval Faire Fans, the 25th Annual Hoggetowne Medieval Faire

The 2011 Renaissance Faire season has begun! Alachua County Fairgrounds is home of the first Medieval Faire of the year, Hoggetowne Medieval Faire.

Join the Thousands – The Hoggetowne festival is known to attract thousands of visitors each year. The Faire’s loyal patrons plot and plan their costumes, anxiously awaiting its arrival. This year Hoggetowne expects to set a new attendance record with at least 50,000 visitors.

The Royal Pavilion – One of the first things visitors will see upon entering the faire is the beautifully decorated pavilion which nests the royal throne. This is where the king and queen of the Hoggetowne Fair reside. Guards and heralds stand on each side of the royal couple. Throughout the festival, children visit the pavilion and become knights, warriors, lords, and ladies.

The Marketplace – There are wonderful treasures and unique trinkets to be found at the festival. Over 160 local artisans gather to provide visitors with wood carvings, jewelry, hand blown glassware, medieval fashion, and more. Visitors are encouraged to come in their own, unique medieval costumes. Find yours at

Entertainment and Recreation – Have some REALLY old fashioned fun. Magicians, musicians, jesters, and jugglers can all be found entertaining the patrons of this wonderful faire. There are also dancers, actors, and jousters that participate in different shows and performances throughout the day.

Rides and Animals – Adults and children get a kick out of the different animals at the faire. There are camels, elephants and ponies. Adults can also ride the animals. There is even a human-powered push ride. Now that’s authentic!

Great Medieval Food – As always the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire will fill you up with delicious food. Munch on the famous giant turkey leg or try some of the local favorites such as ribs and sweet potato fries.
Don’t miss out! The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire is happening January 29-30 and February 4, 5 and 6. Saturday and Sunday the Faire is open from 10-6 and Friday it is open from 9:30-3. Have fun and don’t forget your Medieval Costumes!

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 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.
