The original, biggest and best Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire will be running Weekends April and May at the Santa Fe Dam Recreational Area.
Admission price includes all entertainment: the Joust, 4 parades, music, dance, interactive living history exhibits, craft demonstrations and the battle pageant.
Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire, where fantasy rules and whimsical delights take flight; where worlds co-exist and dreams become alive.
Immerse yourself in a village of more than 1,200 costumed performers and artisans including dazzling acrobats, internationally acclaimed musicians, and entertainers, juggling jokers and jesters, willful wenches, and, newly arrived, jousting knights are ready to celebrate!.
Enjoy 16th Century games, rides, arts, crafts, food, music, and dance, recreating the celebratory spring day in 1574 when the world arrived to entertain Queen Elizabeth in the English Seaport of Deptford.
Before You Go Renaissance Faire
Arrive early, even though the Faire starts at 10 am. The line for parking can stretch for miles on local streets. We recommend go out for breakfast, or bring a morning snack and try to get there between 8:30 and 9:00
VIP parking will get you closer the admission gate and slightly quicker access. You will still have to wait in the long parking line.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. There is a lot of walking. The Renaissance Pleasure Faire is held on a field with lots of dust, and dirt.
Once inside, the world is transformed and free entertainment abounds. The horse jousting is amazing.
Bring money for at least a few culinary treats. There are more than 100 types of delicious types of delectable food and drink are available.
If you want to rent a costume they have a few of these shots near the entrance. Don’t miss out on the food and drink either, eat drink and be merry during this action-packed, fun-filled trip.
