In 1963, from a small field on Haskels Rascals Ranch, L.A., an event known as the “Renaissance Pleasure Faire” was born. Blossoming from the Faire: street performing, arts, crafts, living history scenarios were all given new life.
Some 45 years later, Faire as it is so affectionately known, touches the lives of millions of people a year.
From a school yard fundraiser, Ron and Phylis Patterson took a weekend event and turned it into a worldwide phenomenon.
Struggling to redefine itself , the Faire is now competing with the World Wide Web, Global Economies and Burning Man. Follow the incredible journey of a group of people that defined a movement.
