Overview of Renaissance Faire
The Renaissance Faire, or Ren Faire, is a historical reenactment of a Renaissance England market and theater day in a typical Shire. The Faire occurs in late May on the soccer field behind Welch Pool. The club also takes an annual field trip to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire located at Mount Hope in October. General meetings are held throughout the school year in room A213 to help us prepare for the event. A committee of students, known as Steering, writes the plot and coordinates activities held throughout the day such as Merlin’s Market Crafts, tavern and pub refreshments, dancing, singing, archery demonstrations, a human chess match and many more. Typically there are approximately 30 students in the club, around 10-15 of them being officers on the steering committee. Everyone who is interested is more than welcome to join.
