A Real Renaissance Faire right here in Bucks County with all the glamour and excitement for the entire family at a fraction of the price and distance— and most impressive of all- ALL proceeds benefit the Village Library of Wrightstown.
The 18th Annual Village Renaissance Faire creates an interactive world where attendees of all ages take an entertaining, educational, and engaging stroll through the arts and history. Faire goers encounter jousting knights, dangling aerialists, and flying birds of prey. But that’s not all! Shows and activities cover a range of ages and interests and surround the faireways, on the stages and all around. Performers bring literature to life throughout the day with shows and fairground encounters based on a new storyline each year. Danger shows feature a working trebuchet, living chess, archery matches, and fire breathers. For the music lover, there are dancers, musicians, and madrigals at every turn. While the wee ones are preoccupied with free children's crafts, a kids kingdom, Gnome Depot, and children’s shows, like juggling, story-telling and Punch & Judy, there are plenty of fine artisans featuring clothing, jewelry, pottery, and giftware to browse. Visiting historians are treated to our large living history square and working artisans featuring blacksmithing, glassworking, and woodworking.
No two seasons, nor two days are the same, and this year is no different as new additions are abound and exciting. A Sneakpeak of rising artists venue, the Pirates of Folly Fortune, a large pyrate ship, and even a unicorn will be strolling the grounds this year. And thats only the beginning of the excitement and additions. And if this year holds true additional acts will be added upto the week of the faire, so stay attentive, or best yet, just go and see for yourself.
The Fun for all is not yet over, as all ages can enjoy our medieval gaming glen, thrown weapons, Fight-a-Knight booth, pony and carriage rides, a royal petting zoo, and so much more. When the need for a rest overtakes our guests, they can enjoy a festive turkey leg while listening to music at our covered lyrical stage or gazing upon our annual heraldry display. From the welcome one receives from our players at the opening of the gate, to all of the activities and shows, an enjoyable day is sure to be had. The Faire averages over 9,000 attendees, and always has more stages, activities and space to welcome you into the family this year. The faire is limited to one weekend every September, so come this September 16 & 17, and find out what thousands before you have discovered and returned to year after year – that once you attend you will always come back….HUZZAH!!!!!
