Pirates invade the Delaware River at Philadelphia’s very own Renaissance Faire. With its second full season arriving May 2017, the faire brings a new adventure of love, laughter, and mayhem to families and audiences of all ages.
A renaissance faire is a re-creation of a European medieval or renaissance village – full of vendors, performers, games, and food. Staff and many faire patrons play a role by dressing in historical or whimsical costumes.
The lineup of performers and vendors are their own thrill: singers Chaste Treasure (a “questionably chaste” trio of upperclass ladies), magician and madman Daniel Greenwolf, the family-fun Shakespeare Approves, and the Mongolian décor at Traders of Tamerlane. The fledgling Philadelphia Faire offers something for everyone.
We’ve abandoned the trope of Western Europe in preference of a Mediterranean village where anyone can feel like they have a role. Come as who you are or who you want to be.
For the first time, the Philadelphia Renaissance Faire will be held at the Fort Mifflin. Since restored, the cannons, halls, and haunted bomb shelters have been the subject of paranormal tours and educational programs. Now it lends an eerie ambiance to the faire itself.
