Many of our faire-going friends describe faires as a mini-vacation from modern times; a fun event that lets them leave the cell phone in the car and pretend to be someone else for a day.

While Renaissance faires can be found almost any time of the year, fall faires are a popular choice for many. The cool weather is ideal for outdoor activities popular at Renaissance faires, to include jousting and live weapons demonstrations, as well as simply enjoying walking through the faire in Renaissance costumes without worry of the sometimes extreme, uncomfortable temperatures that can occur in summer and winter.
Many regular Renaissance faire-goers enjoy stepping back into another time for the day, feasting on faire delights to include giant roasted turkey legs. They also get to witness skilled craftspeople constructing anything from handmade Renaissance-style weaponry to intricate wood carvings – all created as it would have been in true Renaissance times. In addition to taking in all the food and craft delights, as well as laughing along with roving comedy troupes of jesters and watching fun games such as axe-throwing, Renaissance faire attendees have an opportunity to add to the overall ambiance of the faire and immerse themselves in the retreat from modern times by outfitting themselves in Renaissance costumes.
A large part of the draw Renaissance faires possess is in the costuming element as it gives you a chance to dictate which role you would like to play, and encourage how you wish to be treated at the faire. If you wish to be a pirate for a day, Renaissance pirate costumes can help you achieve just that. Other popular choices include wench costumes, Royal costumes, to include that of a Queen, King or Princess, and general townspeople or peasant costumes. Faires will also often have themed weekends, which many build their costume around, while other regular faire attendees have a go-to favorite no matter the theme.
If you are a Renaissance faire fan, you likely already have some faires mapped out on your calendar. And if you’ve never been to a Renaissance faire, there truly is no time like the present. Hailey Pearson, Owner of PearsonsRenaissanceShoppe.com and a Renaissance faire fan herself, adds that, “Many of our faire-going friends describe faires as a mini-vacation from modern times; a fun event that lets them leave the cell phone in the car and pretend to be someone else for a day. We hope you have some Renaissance faires on your fall agenda, but if you don’t, there are still plenty of faires and fun to be had in upcoming months!”
