Discover the magic in the age of chivalry and romance as the Renaissance comes to life once again in Virginia. Escape from your daily routine and stop back in time by visiting a charming English country village. Join nobles and fools, merchants and peasants, minstrels and dancers. Delightful entertainment on multiple stages and throughout the streets is sure to keep you captivated. Jugglers, magicians, comedians, music and more fill the stages. Thrill as knights on horseback thunder toward each other, lances drawn. Learn the art of jousting from Her Majesty’s knights, from putting on armor to training exercises to actual combat. See how archery played a central part in Renaissance life, from food to sport to military defense.
Every weekend until June 10.
