The two-day event, now in its eighth year, includes a wide variety of performers, artisans and entertainers, such as the Knights of Mayhem. Vocal and instrumental groups will perform Renaissance music, and the royal court will include a king and queen, nobles, jesters and jugglers. Vendors will provide a variety of food and merchandise. Admission to the faire, which runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, is $15 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and students, and $6 for children age 6 to 12. Children 6 and under get in free. Family passes are available for $30. Those who come in Renaissance period costume will receive a $2 discount if they purchase their ticket at the gate.
