What to expect during your visit to the festival: Plan on being their most of the day. With tournaments, shows and demonstrations held throughout the day you will find many interesting and engaging activities you will want to partake in. Dressing in renaissance garb or costumes  (within reason of course) is always welcomed and makes your experience all that much more interesting. Pirates, gypsies, archers or wenches are all acceptable costume ideas, the important thing is to have fun with it. Be ready to learn, eat and be merry as there are so many guilds, artisans, and food. It really is a world away and as you can see by the pictures, my girl always has blast with the performers! Weather can get warm, so be prepared and comfortable walking shoes are a plus.
