Maryland Renaissance Festival 2014

Even if you’re not into medieval sword fighting, fire-breathing dragons, wearing corsets, or shopping for leather goods, I highly recommend visiting a local renaissance festival. We go every year during the fall season, so it’s become a bit of tradition for us (we are lucky enough to have lived near the Michigan and now Maryland sites).

People watching is one of my favorite pastimes, and RennFest┬áis a great place for it – people go all out on their costumes, like this group who made their own!

I love walking in and out of the little shops and talking to the owners and artisans who are showcasing their goods.

Hands down, the best part of going to a RennFest┬áis the entertainment. Musicians, magicians, sword swallowers, jesters, jousters, acrobats… The stages are full all day with high-quality acts that are more than worth the admission.
