Our little village of Willingtown comes to life as our annual Market Faire welcomes talented and exotic performers from throughout the globe to our streets and stages. The Entertainment is non stop all day.

The streets and stages boast music and dance from traditional Morris and English Country, to Celtic and Gypsy Tribal. Swashbuckling swordfighters render women defenseless with their charm and skill.

The original form of Renaissance theatre is played out on the Royal Garden stage in the form of the hilarious Commedia Dell Arte performed by the renowned troupe, Commedia Volante.

Foolishness and fun rule the day as ever popular favorites, Moonie the Magnif’cent and BrooN bring their unique brand of mischief and humor to the Fools stage. The town is buzzing as the villagers prepare for a visit from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth and the most famous Privateer of the time, Sir Francis Drake. Happy peasants, crooked Constables, gossiping washerwomen, and merry maidens fill the streets with revelry as the festivities begin. Seven stages boast non stop entertainment. For a complete list of shows, click on The Stages category. Meet all of the Theme Characters, Guilds and Musicians that fill the streets on our Theme Characters, Guilds and Musicians pages.

Northern California Renaissance Faire

Come celebrate the harvest with us as the streets and pathways of our village come to life! Our marketplace of master artisans once again offers the latest designs and finest hand work in blown glass, keen blades, armor and chain mail, romantic clothing, leather-work, woodwork, hand wrought jewelry, sculpture and much, much more. Stop to play a game of darts, sip an ale or sink your teeth into delicious fare while perusing the fine crafts displayed throughout the shire. Then, sit, relax and watch a show on one of our beautiful stages located throughout the marketplace or interact with some of the locals before heading on.

For those who wish to fully immerse themselves in the complete faire experience we recommend wearing a costume. If you don’t have one of your own, you can rent one just inside our gates at Belrose Costumes or purchase some new finery to take home from one of our quality merchants. From classic Renaissance attire to saucy pirate gear to gypsy tribal garb, we have a huge selection of unique hand crafted clothing, jewelry and accessories that you won’t find in your average shopping mall. For more information about costume rentals, please visit The Belrose website.
