The Renaissance Festival is back in full swing (includes video story)

The Renaissance Festival returns to Quiet Waters Park for its 31st anniversary. The Village of Kimmendale is live in the park during weekends in March.

The event offers everything from eats, mead and beer to music on the drums and organ. There are many parts of the village but the experience on the Promenade is interactive, with a series of games visitors can play. 

From sword fights to fire shows, there is something for everyone at this year’s Renaissance Festival. It runs through the weekend of March 26. For more information or to purchase your tickets visit
