If you've never been to a Renaissance Festival then you should definitely make 2008 your year to go!  As they say, it's like 400 years of fun in a single day!  This year the 19th annual Ohio Renaissance Festival runs from August 30th thru October 19th.  What better way to spend a nice fall day than to be entertained by valient knights or swindling pirates?  The "Open-air Marketplace" is amazing with all the arts and crafts from a time long, long ago.  It's always fun to do a little 16th century shopping with 21st century plastic! By today's standards it's almost impossible to find a place to go as a family where everyone can have fun and enjoy themselves no matter what their age.  The Renaissance festival is one such place!  Furthermore, they encourage visitors to enter into the spirit of things with costumes and audience participation.  What better way to do this than by wearing one of our Renaissance costumes when you go.  We have them in all sizes for men, women and children.  So grab a costume and step back to a historic time of jousting, Robin Hood and Queen Elizabeth I.  You'll be glad you did!
