Bristol Renaissance Faire Announces 2021 Season!
The Top Renaissance Faire in the Country Set to Open July 10
KENOSHA, WI – The iconic, summer-long Bristol Renaissance Faire will open the gates for the 2021 season after its voluntary shuttering last year due to the pandemic. ‘Our team is working hard to literally set the stages for world-class, immersive entertainment that will put a smile on your face as we recognize that what we do best is needed now more than ever. We are working closely with the local health department and the most current CDC recommendations to ensure the safety of our guests, vendors, volunteers, and staff,’ stated Linda McFeters, Owner and Producer.
Voted “Best Renaissance Faire” for the ninth consecutive year in 2019, the Bristol Renaissance Faire will open Saturday, July 10, for nine weekends closing on Labor Day Monday, September 6. The Faire offers an exciting, eclectic mix of fun and frivolity located on thirty-plus acres and just a short drive from either Chicago or Milwaukee.
Leave your burdens in the 21st century. Show up as a King, Queen, pirate, sorcerer, or anything you want to be for the day and you will find many who will play along! Or don’t come in costume at all. It’s your day. Enjoy it your way. Go on a stroll through the village with a gigantic turkey leg or steak-on-a-stake or one of the many scrumptious vegetarian delights like the perennially popular Garlic Mushrooms or Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. For the thirsty, craft brews, ciders, cocktails, teas, sodas and other refreshing beverages are readily available.
Take home a memory from one of the nearly 200 artisan shops where you can find everything from handmade chain maille, Scottish kilts, and handcrafted leather masks to Steampunk adornments, soaps, jewelry, and beautiful floral wreaths for the hair. Interesting, educational demonstrations by potters, blacksmiths, and other working artisans offered many times throughout the day. Stuart Abelman, who has works displayed in museums and private collections around the globe, will be demonstrating and displaying the art of glass-blowing and celebrating his 50th year as an artisan. Learn about glass-blowing from one of the world’s master craftsmen!
