Brevard Renaissance Fair Opening Weekend: Year Three of Wickham Park’s Only Medieval Festival

The Medieval world comes to Brevard County as the Brevard Renaissance Fair gears up for the third annual fair “Season of the Hood” boasting food, fun, and family entertainment. Located at the Wickham Park Amphitheater, Opening Weekend begins January 20-21 with an encore on January 27-28, and February 2-4, 2018. With more than 30 entertainment acts on 7 stages and dozens of shops, enjoy a cast of colorfully costumed, exotic, and intriguing characters featuring Robin Hood and his Merry Men (and Women).

Catch a glimpse of times past and lose yourself in the Old World of Medieval Europe. Cheer your champion knight at the Joust Arena. Feast like a King on classic Ren Fair foods, such as juicy turkey legs, and quench your thirst with mead, cider, beer, and soft drinks fit for royalty. Come aboard with C. Weed and the rest of the Renegades as we explore from pub to pub to pub singing songs, playing games, and sharing a pint at each pub including the adult only pub. Delight in the antics of street performers. Come hear musicians play authentic period instruments. Watch demonstrations of time-honored arts and skills. Discover an enchanted place where fairy tales become flesh.

“It is our goal to promote and support arts, education, and imagination for the citizens of Brevard County,” shares Anthony DeRivi, the fair’s Executive Producer. “Prepare to step back in time to a simpler way of life and the festival atmosphere of a charming Olde World Faire.”

With nationally renowned entertainment acts, families and die-hard fans will experience period music, bards, and singalong with featured acts to include:
       The Craic Show, a high energy blend of Medieval Music
       Stary Olsa, known to recreate modern music with Medieval instruments and undertones
       Rambling Sailors, weaving comedy with songs of the sea in salty harmonies
       The Limey Birds, an acapella trio with engaging banter between songs
       Wolgemut, historical music, such as bagpipes, shawms, and drums

This year, the fair will also be open for one special night on January 27th, from 7pm – 10pm (additional ticket required) for a main stage performance by Stary Olsa and opening acts Aaron Bonk and Jessica Holanda. The night will include group singing, spontaneous dancing, and ample drinking.

For the kids, the Brevard Renaissance Fair offers pirates and knights, games of chance, puppets, unicorns, and mermaids. Let your children be amazed by the jousters and jugglers, engage with pieces in the human chessboard, and find trinkets to take home that capture their memories forever. Weekend and Season passes available, along with our featured Education Day on February 2nd, 2018, where children pay just $5 and adults are $2 (limited acts and vendors; not a full show).
