This weekend begins six days of Renaissance fun in Tavares.
The Lady of the Lake Renaissance Faire began in 2002, offering visitors an opportunity to step back in time to a magical, enchanting fantasy land created to represent an authentic European village.
The Faire is an established member of a National Renaissance Faire circuit and features over 100 performers, representing various entertainments of the time – Knights in armor, gypsies, fire-eaters, pirates, dancers, merchants, peasants, historical characters and a variety of musicians.
Artisans fill the village, working in mediums such as pottery, leather work, sculpture, and candle making. The crafts and entertainment combine with thematic games and foods to create a glimpse of marketplace celebrations of life in the 16th century.
Lady of the Lake Renaissance Faire runs November 4-6 and November 11-13 at 12835 County Landfill Road in Tavares.
