Renaissance Festival Returns to Deerfield Beach

Admission: Adult $20; seniors (65+ with ID) receive a discount at the Fair ticket booths.

Hear ye, hear ye! All are invited to join the event organizers and photography class teachers for a photo filled day at the 22nd annual Renaissance Festival. We have chosen to go for the ‘Themed Weekend’ event of “ Bodacious Bodies"

This promises to be a ‘street photographers’ Nirvana. The festival is full of costumed ‘players’ (official and paying guests) and everyone loves to have their photo taken. Stroll through the enchanted Craft Village – see merchants and artisans demonstrate and sell their wares. Behold glass blowing, hammered pewter, wooden toys, unique pottery, clothing and a wealth of other riches.

Applaud hundreds of performers, not only on the twelve stages but literally all around you. Photograph sword fighters, battling knights, minstrels, magicians, wenches and more.

Lots of feasting can be had after you have filled your camera cards or drained your batteries and when you want to rest your shutter release finger – then there are plenty of games of chance for you to enjoy.

PARKING: There are plenty of parking attendants to guide you to a good spot on the lawns. A small Broward County Park fee of $1.50 is collected at the park entrance when you turn onto the park property from Powerline Road.

    I'm coming to your area Dec15 and staying for 3 months. I have been taking beginning classes and classes at different locations in the Chicago area. The amount off your local color is exciting and yet, overwhelming to me. What class should I take in January and where should I begin?

    Is there a meetup place, or are we on our own when we go in?

    February 21, 2014

    • Irene H.

      Under the meetup title is a description of the meetup plus a time and place to meet. After we meet with each other, we disperse. The instructors, however, are available the entire time to help.
