    There will be a Cosplay Costume Contest, pirates, fairies and knights. You'll also see firebreathers, jugglers, musicians and dancers from across the realm. There will also be plenty of medieval food and artisan crafts at the vendors. 

    Make sure to check out the Jousting demostration by Jousting Evolution.

    Here's a YouTube video from last year's event.



    The FAQS page states that weapons are allowed as long as they are peace-tied to prevent the weapon from being drawn. Here's the quote from the website.

    Make sure that your blade is properly bound so as not to be drawn by anyone else. You may not draw your blades or medieval replica weapons at the festival. Exposed blades and weaponry are expressly forbidden. Violators will be asked to place their blades/replica weapons in their vehicle or will be expelled without refund at the discretion of the festival staff.

    Admission this year is only $11 for adults and $5 for children under 12. You can also save up to $7.50 if you purchase your tickets online.
  3. The 32nd Annual Lakewood Renaissance Faire is being held next weekend Saturday September 21 and Sunday September 22, 2013.

    This annual event helps raise funds for The Lions Club of Lakewood, NJ. They supply vision and hearing screenings, eyeglasses and hearing airds for the needy as well as scholarships for graduation high school seniors.

    The Lakewood Lions and the SCA first transformed the park into “Ye Village of Pine Park in the Barony of Carillion in the East Kingdom” on September of 1981.

    Harken back to medieval times and see what life was like during the Europen Middle Ages. Throughout the day there will be archery competitions, Knights in hand to hand combat, weapon throwing competitions, fencing and yes even several rounds of jousting.

    It's a great way to have some fun and give back to the community at the same time. This is a truly affordable event as well. Adults are only $10.00, Children 6-12 only $1.00 and wee ones under 5 years of age are free.

    Check out this YouTube video of the jousting match from the 2010 event.




    The website doesn't have a FAQS page or discuss their weapons policy so it would be best to contact them before you include and swords or knives as part of your costume. As always it's best to peace tie any medieval weapons you want to wear.
