2012 Northern California Renaissance Faire opening weekend
On Saturday, September 15, 2012, excited fairgoers waited in anticipation for gates to open at the 2012 Northern California Renaissance Faire. Once the gates opened, music and Elizabethan English was spoken almost entirely. My trusted pirate led me through the crowd of first timers just stunned in amazement by the reenactment of the actors, transporting them to this 15th century English village. The actors were just amazing. We saw a lot of familiar faces from the Renaissance Faire in Southern California.
The layout of the faire was much better than SoCal’s with areas of shade, like Sherwood Forest. When you’re wearing period attire, shade is definitely your best friend. Lots of “fyne” wares were being sold ranging from costumes to incense burners to jewelry. This is a great opportunity for both first timers to start their costume for next year as well as long-time faire goers who want to add to their wardrobe.
