Welcome to my Renaissance Faire blog.

•January 26, 2010 • 4 Comments

This blog is an addition to Renaissance Faire Pictorial.com. The site focuses on my visits to Renaissance Festivals and events in the south eastern USA. I post pictures, links, and information on faires in TN, Ky, Al, and Ga. In addition I have calendars for Renaissance, pirate, and fairy festivals. I do not list them all, there are several sites that do that. For information on others faires visit Faire Folk or Renaissance Festival.com.
I will use the blog to post festival news, audition notices, site update notices and more. Early each month I list the events for the coming month. Please drop in a comment, rate a post, or use the share this blog link to the right.

Thank you.

Renaissance Faire offers community experience – Flor-Ala: Life

•October 8, 2014 • Leave a Comment

The Alabama Renaissance Faire will be held Oct. 25 and 26 at Wilson Park in Florence.

“The Renaissance era was the rebirth of all the arts and philosophy and literature, so it was perfect,” said Billy Warren, chairman of the Florence Renaissance Faire. “Florence, Alabama was laid out by an Italian surveyor in 1818, and of course the Renaissance Faire itself started in Florence, Italy.”
