The Maine Renaissance Faire brings together actors, artisans, history buffs, and fantasy lovers in a two weekend event packed with performances, food, and fun. The setting is the Village of Yorkshire in the year 1571. Visitors will be welcomed at the Opening Gate ceremony by Queen Elizabeth I and her court along with a bevy of raucous villagers. Melanie Fuller, owner of Dragon Star Creations and organizer of the event, said “we felt that the community was missing an event like this. It is a wonderful opportunity to bring folks together for two days of fun and fantasy. We are thrilled to be bringing back this annual tradition.”

Faire goers will be entertained by a unique schedule of performances including aerial acrobatics, jousting, live steel combat, comedy shows, belly dancing, Celtic and medieval music, and more. Fan favorites include the jousting tournament presented by RoundTable Productions and live steel combat provided by the Brotherhood of the Arrow and Sword. Musical entertainment will be provided by the Penniless Jacks, Misfits of Avalon, Myschyffe Managed, Shank Painters and the King’s Busketeers including traditional Celtic ballads, Medieval and Renaissance madrigals, and rousing pub tunes.

For those who love to laugh, there will be entertainment by the hilarious Maine Washing Wenches, the Gwendolyn Show, and Shakespeare Approves. Other crowd favorites include aerial acrobatics by the amazing, Beachtold and Abel, and belly dancing performed by the Shimmynannigans. Lastly, the Maine Renaissance Faire theatrical performances will include Kate Hopkins in her role as Queen Elizabeth I, Sheriff Braken’s Trial and Dunk Show, and the Great Unwashed, mud beggar show. With over 9 stages and 24 shows there is truely something for everyone!

The Maine Renaissance Faire is also welcoming over 60 unique artisans and vendors to the event. Fair goers will have the opportunity to shop an incredible variety of one-of-a-kind handmade items including hand woven works of art, leather goods, replica weaponry, period inspired clothing, jewelry, and other magical merchandise.
