Renaissance Pleasure Faire Reigns in Irwindale



The Renaissance Pleasure Faire is held in Irwindale for six weekends each spring, and there are still a couple left this year!

I haven't been yet, so I don't have much to write, but it looks like such a great time. I'm really looking forward to going. Here's a page from About.com that gives you all the details on the event.


My high school friend is in a musical group, the Poxy Boggards, at the fair. Be sure to look them up!


If You Go:
When: April 4 - May 17, 2009, Saturdays and Sundays 10 am to 7 pm
Where: Santa Fe Dam Recreational Area, 15501 E. Arrow Hwy, Irwindale, CA at the intersection of the 606 and 210 freeways, Irwindale exit off the 605.
Cost: Adult General Admission $21 online, $25 at the gate, Children 5-12 $13.50 online/$15 gate, Children under 5 free. Buy 2 get 1 free early bird special. Additional fees for games, rides and food. Discount coupons are available from the website.
Parking: $8 park entry fee

My favorite part of Renaissance Faires are the period costumes. It looks so tiring to be carrying all that weight all day! I think if I lived in the middle ages I would've been a court jester. What's your favorite part of the fair? What role would you like to play? Leave me a comment below.
