Does stepping back in time to the Elizabethan era, wandering amongst people dressed as pirates, scoundrels, and knights sound intriguing? If so, get your costume ready for this year's Valhalla Renaissance Faire at Camp Richardson!

Every year, more than 8,000 visitors gather at the Valhalla Renaissance Faire. With the Queen of England, juggling jesters, pirates, lords and ladies and jousting presentations by the Imperial Knights, you don't have to be a kid to find the entertainment value, though it is certainly a family friendly event. More than 1,000 actors provide this entertainment annually.  There are hundreds of crafts booths on site to shop from, games for kids to play and presentations of dance, song, plays, puppet shows and more.

Parking near the faire fills up very quickly, on a first-come first-serve basis. The alternative to this, is to park at the Y shopping area, where there will be a shuttle service running to the faire.
