Event Description

CRPL Presents the 5th Annual Mid-Winter Renaissance Faire at the Downtown Library on Saturday, January 12. 

Experience the mischief and magic of the Renaissance!

The classics are back, with plenty of new merriment for the whole family. Visit with the King and Queen and wander with jugglers and pirates, all against a background of live Renaissance music. Listen to "Shakespeare from the rafters" while a live sword fight clangs through the commons. Attend Pirate Comedy Hour, make a pirate hat, or learn Calligraphy and listen to live Renaissance music. There's something for everyone at the largest indoor Renaissance Faire in the state.
