Renaissance Faires

SCRIBE The best place to find date and contact information for Renaissance events in North America is the SCRIBE web site. There is an alphabetical list of events, a list of events by state/provence, and a whole lot of information in the SCRIBE archives. To see the Faire through the eyes of other people, take a look at some of the sites I've listed in Personal Pages.

Events not listed by SCRIBE

These are events that I know about that (for whatever reason) are not listed with SCRIBE. These may be shows with less than the minimum run required for a SCRIBE listing, or they may not be in North America (SCRIBE only lists North American events).

The Eureka Springs Renaissance Faire (Eureka Springs, Arkansas)
Grand Valley State University Renaissance Faire (Allendale, Michigan)
The Medieval Festival at Fort Tyron Park (New York, New York)
The North Texas Irish Festival (Dallas, Texas)
Ohio State University Medieval and Renaissance Festival
Silver City Renaissance Faire (Silver City, New Mexico)
Warwick Castle (England)

Unofficial Home Pages

These are informational web sites targeting specific faires, but are not really "official" web sites (the official web site is the one listed with the SCRIBE). So I've listed them here.
