The days are growing shorter and the nights are getting colder. This always signals the end of renaissance faires and medieval festivals in the northern states. But there are a few weekends left to hang out and have fun. One example is the Ohio Renaissance Festival.
The faire is still running this Saturday and Sunday October 13-14, 2012 and next weekend October 20 & 21, 2012. The event is open 10:30AM to 6:00PM both days. If you buy tickets online they are only $16.99 for teens and adults a savings of $3.00 off the gate price. Children ages 5-12 are only $8.99 a savings of $1.00 off the gate price.
There will be tons of entertainment including live music, stage shows and even a full armored joust. Plus this weekend’s theme is Oktoberfest so there will be plenty of beer and brats at the village pubs as well as the annual pumpkin decorating contest.
Check out this YouTube video from the jousting and sword fighting events earlier this year.
A few notes about the festival. No pets are allowed, you may not bring outside food or beverage into the village and all weapons must be tied in a sheath at all times.
