Travel back to a time when arts, music, and festivities flourished day and night, at the Northern California Renaissance Faire, happening every weekend from September 13th through October 12th at Casa de Fruta in Hollister. Attendees will be transported to the era of Queen Elizabeth I as they watch exotic performances and take part in music and dance from traditional Morris and English Country, to Celtic and Gypsy Tribal in the simulated traditional Village of Willingtown.
Walk the streets of the authentic Renaissance marketplace and find treasures for all to enjoy. Visit the master artisans who offer unique designs and finest hand work in blown glass, keen blades, leather-work, woodwork, jewelry and much more.
Feast on a gigantic turkey leg or some of the many other delectable food choices offered throughout the Faire. Stop by one of the colorful drink stands to quench your thirst with a delicious ale or cider.
Enjoy exciting activities and performances are sure to entertain all age groups. Face painting, hair-braiding, comedy shows, and fortune tellers are some of the fun you can take part in. Test your accuracy with a bow and arrow or axe-throwing game. And of course, catch one of the full contact jousting tournaments that will be performed twice a day in the World Tournament of Champions arena.
Kick up your heels with a blast from the past, Celtic-style! The original adult playground is proud to announce the return of its unique Celtic Rock Concert Series as a premier attraction featuring a different sound every Saturday night for five weekends.
