  • A Day at Bristol Renaissance Faire - Where Fantasy Rules

    Bristol Renaissance Faire

    Join us for a day of history at the Bristol Ren Faire. We travel back in time to 1574 and watch jousting, stage shows, and many characters explaining what life was like in the era of Queen Elizabeth – no, not the current Queen Elizabeth, she hasn’t been alive that long ;-) It’s a day of fantasy where you can dress up as anything to join in the fun. We highly recommend going in costume. The performers and actors at the Faire interact so much more with guests who are dressed up. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be accurate, or even from the same era. We have seen Princess Leah, storm troopers, lots of animals, fairies, time travelers, barbarians, pirates – I think you get the picture.
