Our faire is unique - a blend of the Renaissance in the year 1550 and Pirates of the 18th Century! Visitors are invited to join us in period attire; you may want to look at our participants' Costume Guide for ideas. Weapons may be worn if appropriate to your character, but must be kept sheathed and peace-tied at all times. No firearms - real or pretend - please.
