Ren Fest Adventure

Once a year in March or April on the weekend, of course, I don my most comfortable Renaissance-looking outfit. Usually a pirate, gypsy or something of the like.  Then, I gather those who will join me and head off to the Bay Area Renaissance Festival in Tampa, Florida.

Here are my photos and tips from this years’ adventure.

Splurge a little and try the local foods.

Bring your own beverage container. The larger the better! 🙂

Be sure to make your rounds to all the jeweler’s and crafters. Their handmade items are unlike any others and beautifully crafted.

If you didn’t dress for Ren Fest, never fear. For a small price, you too can look ridiculous.

Then fence with a friend!

All of the characters, knights and royal folk encourage photos!

I know that most of these groups, vendors and actors travel from city to city doing festivals of this kind so check your local websites! And if you are ever in Tampa this time of year look up the Bay Area Ren Fest! You won’t be disappointed!

Have a great day!
