a gargoyle cat, right? Nearly 200 artisans display their wares in the Bristol Faire Marketplace. What to expect, suggestive giant pickles, snap deals coupons codes fairs vary in size and content, but typically this is what you'll find: Shops and stalls selling clothing, candles, soaps, jewelry, artwork, weapons, ceramics, leather goods, books, and much more. The photo that launched a thousand questions. Wandering actors in character: feel free to talk to them and ask to take photos of them with your strange camera contraptions.
Children 4 years and younger always free!
Welcome to the Bristol Renaissance Faire Where You Can Party Like its 1599!
Every Faire day recreates a time when knights were noble, maids were merry and turkey legs were titanic.

I recently attended the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, WI for the billionth time, give or take a million.

Here's what to expect at a Renaissance fair. Feel free to ease in to a Renaissance fair by dressing in your normal clothes. If anyone gives you a funny look, just bite your thumb at them and throw a turkey leg. Notes You can add a note for the editor here. My fellow editor, Chris, started asking me all these questions: where I got my dress, what kind of entertainment there is, and if she'd be ridiculed for her lack of knowledge of olde-y world-y things if she attended (spoiler: hell no!). The Faire boasts a beautiful 30-acre site with open-air stages featuring Swordfighters, Minstrels and Jesters. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here. We decided that I should write up a primer for preparing to embark on a geeky trip back in time. Tip: Fairs are usually a lot of walking, so wear comfy shoes or bring a backup pair. It's totally not necessary to dress up at all. Food and drink: turkey legs, meat pies, giant pickles, wine, beer, and tons of regular food, too. Queen Elizabeth, Herself, is visiting Bristol!
