Recreating the past pageantry and chivalry of the Renaissance era, the 14th annual Ingleside Renaissance Faire will be held at Live Oak Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., December 8 and 9, in Ingleside. The two-day event depicts the events of the 17th century including medieval combat, kings and queens,
court jesters and indescribable creatures of the time.
With acrobats, roaming performers, gypsies and an archery challenge, the faire features the dance, magic, crafts, food, wares, music, entertainment and folklore of the Renaissance period. Activities include jousting, sword battles, comedic performers, archery and blacksmithing.
Attendees are encouraged to dress in Renaissance attire. Costume tips for converting existing clothes into time-period appropriate clothes are available on the festival website, which encourages accessories and headwear to feel the part. Merchandise and wares of the period will also be available at vendor booths. Admission is $3 for ages 3 and above.
Location: 1875 Port Ave., Live Oak Park, Ingleside. For more info, call 361-776-2906 or visit InglesideTXChamber.org.
