“It is by proclamation of the King that the 13th and 14th of December be DOUBLED in size and declared the Sixteenth Annual Renaissance Faire!

So let it be written,
so let it be done.”
Ingleside's 16th Annual Renaissance Faire
“It is by proclamation of the King that the 13th and 14th of December be DOUBLED in size and declared the Sixteenth Annual Renaissance Faire! ALL of ye that attend shall eat, drink and be merry. So let it be written, so let it be done.”
For the 16th consecutive year, all manner of events shall transpire during this year’s Annual Ingleside Renaissance Faire. The Faire has indeed doubled in size and you’ll experience more medieval fun than ever before. The veil of darkness shall be lifted and in its place shall be created a true renaissance event. The past comes alive in Live Oak Park as knights, Kings, Queens, fairies, fair maidens, commoners, and court jesters roam the land. Massive oak trees of the park will be home to many elves, trolls, goblins and dragons. Be sure to tread carefully so as not to harm them. Ingleside will be transformed back to the days of the lost Golden Age. The Faire opens at 10am on Sat. Dec 13, and as the King decreed, shall unleash all the pageantry and chivalry of the Renaissance through food, drink, music, dance, entertainment and much more. For two whole days, fair-goers will experience firsthand the crafts, arts, magic, and folklore of the Renaissance, and get a chance to bring home a souvenir from the many diverse craftsmen and merchants which will be situated throughout the park.
As part of the festivities, there will be challenging feats awaiting you. Feats of which will test your strength and your skill; along with a cornucopia of mouthwatering foods and drink for you to partake of. Players, performers and actors will also treat you to different levels of fun and awe. From amazing sword play, jousting and life size walking trees, to belly-busting comedy acts; it all takes place at the Renaissance Faire in Ingleside!
