Every once in awhile, I start to write a post and desperately wish I could dig out some old photos. I have the best picture of my husband with some crazy elf ears from our first Ohio Renaissance Festival. Long before we were married it is one of my favorite “date” memories. I wish had been able to dress in full Renfest regalia but I didn’t have that kind of fashion attire hanging in the closet. This year, I can’t wait for my kids to get to experience over large chicken legs (which they probably won’t eat – weird picky eaters) and jousting. I personally can’t wait to stroll through the market. I might even get the husband to recreate his cool elfness! Which will be a huge hit considering our love of the Elf around here.
About the event:
Forget your cares and step back in time to this 30-acre re-created 16th Century English village and enjoy over 400 years of fun in a single day! The festival offers something for everyone featuring nearly 100 shows daily on 11 stages, over 135 unique arts and crafts shops, hearty food and drink, games of skill and human-powered rides to amuse all ages.
Over 150 costumed characters welcome you to the village! Rub elbows with Royalty as you cheer your favorite knight to victory in the thrilling Full-armored Tournament Joust. Welcoming you to a festive day in the village are dueling swordsmen, rowdy pirates, nobles, peasants, and daring jugglers. The sprawling landscape is dotted with hundreds of unique shops in the Medieval Marketplace featuring many one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted items. See time-honored crafts of glassblowing, stone carving, blacksmithing, leather tooling, boot making, and more demonstrated. The air is filled with the scents and smells of the foods of the Renaissance period. Feast like Royalty on juicy, giant roasted turkey legs, fresh baked bread bowls overflowing with soups and stews, fish ‘n chips, steak-on-a-stake, succulent roasted corn on the cob and a wide variety of the finest ales and wines. There’s something for everyone’s taste buds!
Visitors of all ages will be amused by the games of skill and human-powered rides. Try your hand at archery and see if you’re a modern-day Robin Hood, or climb the castle tower and rescue the lovely damsel in distress.
