Bristol Renaissance Faire

The Bristol Renaissance Faire recreates a time when knights were noble, maids were merry and turkey legs were titanic. Once you enter the portal gates, you travel back in time to the year 1574, and you've walked right into an exciting village festival day.  It's time to eat, drink and be merry! Revelry is the order of the day!

Saturday, August 24th is part of the Monsters of Myth weekend! The Goblin King calls forth all imps, trolls, elves and other assorted monsters to frolic this weekend with the mortals. Heed his call, bring your Kingdom to life and show Bristol your best-dressed monstrous side!

This is an all day event from opening at 10am until closing at 7pm.  Come and go as you please.  Organizers and members can post their contact information below in the comments section to meet up with the group during the day's festivities.  Carpool requests should also be arranged in the comments section below. Bring your friends!

    Carpool, anyone? I could either drive or pitch in gas money. Coming from Naperville.

    August 15, 2013

    • Brian C.

      I just realized me being able to drive tomorrow should depend on me being able to get my license back today. I shouldn't volunteer until I've got that back.

      So I may have to work early tomorrow morning, as such I can't promise to be leaving before noon. Sorry guys my coworker called off sick :( I'll call you when I arrive if able to get there.

    Where shall we meet up?

    • Sarah

      For everyone planning to arrive by opening next Saturday, meet at the front gates by 10AM right before you turn in your ticket to enter the faire. For everyone arriving throughout the day I would say give a fellow Meetup member a call to see where we are all at. You can reach me at [masked] or Ben at [masked]

      Since I drove to and from Indiana this weekend, I would prefer to contribute food/gas money instead of driving. But I will drive if necessary.

    I've never gone to a Ren faire before. Is it expected you'll dress appropriately? If so, where's a good place to find info on that?

    July 12, 2013

    • Sarah

      http://www.renfaire.c...­ should help you out if you decide to go in costume.

      July 12, 2013

    • Rick M.

      From my own experiences, you can dress in a medieval/historical costume or dress up in something related as well. I remember one Ren Faire we had Captain Jack Sparrow and Horatio Nelson visited.

      You remind me of the babe.
      What babe?
      The babe with the power.
      What power?
      The power of voodoo.
      Who do?
      You do.
      Do what?
      Remind me of the babe.
