BREVARD COUNTY • Prepare to step back in time to a simpler way of life and the festival atmosphere of a charming Olde World Faire day in Renaissance Europe.
Continuing at the Wickham Park Amphitheater Friday (Education Day), Saturday and Sunday, the Festival of the Dragon Renaissance Faire is a fundraising and education event put on by the Annie and Kids Arts and Education Foundation.
The proceeds from the fair will go directly back into the community to support Arts and Education programs.
The Renaissance Faire is a recreation of a Renaissance or Medieval village. They are filled with costumed actors, crafts and games to give patrons the illusion that they have stepped back in time.
The Brevard Renaissance Fair will feature over 70 performances on four stages and over 70 craftspeople set inside of Wickham Park woods, located at 2500 Parkway Drive in Melbourne.
The age of romance, chivalry and adventure will be recreated among the wonders of nature in this idyllic Brevard County setting.
You are especially fortunate if you have brought your imagination, good humor and sense of participation to the Faire. You will be able to shop, eat and revel with a cast of colorfully costumed, exotic and intriguing characters.
Catch a glimpse of times past (or possibly a unicorn or fairy), and lose yourself in the Olde World of Medieval– Renaissance Europe.
You will cheer your champion knight at the Joust Arena. Feast like a King on a cornucopia of hearty food and drink a plenty. Delight in the antics of street performers. Come hear musicians playing authentic period instruments.
Watch demonstrations of the time-honored arts of weaving, coin minting, spinning, sculpting, glass blowing, tinsmithing, blacksmithing, and leather crafting.
You will discover an enchanted place where Fairy-tales become flesh and fantasy, take flight but BEWARE the Dragon. The presentation of this historical era in an enjoyable, educational and safe environment makes it a sure bet for family entertainment.
