About the Renaissance Faire
We are a Living History event that seeks to recreate the spirit of Renaissance France.
Travel back in time as you step into the beautifully wooded, 16th century village, we call Petit Lyon! Immerse yourself in the costumes and mannerisms of the era. Thrill to the exploits of Jousting Knights on thundering steeds. Roam the village shops for unique crafts and goods as our artisans demonstrate period skills. Delight in comedy, music, and feats of daring do. Feast on delicious food and drink while strolling minstrels entertain. Interact with the colorful villagers, nobles, peasants, and personalities of ages past.
Petit Lyon is privileged to host some of the finest crafters and artisans in the realm! You will find a wide variety of handcrafted treasures as well as unique items brought from the far corners of the world to entice and delight. Our merchants offer a delightful selection of period-inspired wares for your perusal, games, services and foods for your enjoyment. Visitors can watch some of the crafts in progress as the artisans demonstrate their talents.
You’ll witness sword fighting and juggling, and hear music and laughter around every corner! Our costumed cast have re-created a 16th century French village where you will be able to see and interact with everyone from peasant to noble courtier.
Children will enjoy the petting zoo and games in the Kid’s Kingdom. The King’s Quest lets our young visitors earn a special audience with the King and Queen. The Faire is especially proud of several new educational offerings this year: the Hospitaller Knights encampment, the Viking camp and longboat display, and the wood collier camp.
