Renaissance, Medieval & Pirate Faire Directory

View Faires for This Weekend or By State | Pirates | Fairies | Dickens | Highland Games

The first Renaissance Faire was held in 1963, becoming the Renaissance Pleasure Faire at Agoura, California; Novato's Black Point RPFN followed a few years later. Since then the love of history, fantasy, costuming, and ale has spread Faires across the United States. Some are Renaissance era, some Medieval, but all have a home for Pirates, Elves, Fairies, Vikings, Klingons and You.
