This very special 16th century Renaissance harvest faire comes to life during the apple harvest of the mythic hamlet of Fenford. Two days of historical re-enactments, entertainment, games and refreshments for the entire family take place 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Saturday, September 14 and 10 a.m - 5 p.m. September 15. All events held at Sebastopol's historic Ives Park, 7400 Willow Street.
Interactive living history performances, parades, storytelling, and sword fighting will be among the activites planned for both days. Faire highlights also include a Renaissance scavenger hunt for kids of all ages, make & take craft booths, herbal soap making, leatherwork, falcons, and more historical demonstrations and workshops about spinning, chainmaille, cheese-making, and Elizabethan spies.
The family friendly Much Ado About Sebastopol draws costumed Renaissance Faire goers and audiences from all around the North Bay Area.
