Renaissance Faire

Beauty

We thought the jousters’ steeds well trained, graceful and truly beautiful.


Status

Competitors sought to improve their status through games of skill.

 


Athletic

Noblemen demonstrated their athletic prowess.

 


Pleasure

A practitioner of an oriental pleasure.


Masterpiece

This woodland nymph crocheted a metallic web-like chain mail masterpiece.


Dream

She could be Titania from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

 

 


Strange

We found fire to be a strange choice for lunch.

 


Lightness

Soap bubbles floated around the fair.

 


Jovial

The art of juggling can also be jovial.

 


The Team

Teamwork is extremely important when juggling large knives.

 


Candid

We’re not sure whether this onlooker truly appreciated the art of falconry.

 


Fashion

Some people were satisfied to watch as others dressed, spoke, and acted in a fashion they deemed appropriate to the renaissance period.

 


People

We arrived early at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in an attempt to avoid long entrance lines and swarms of people.  The crowd quickly increased, however, as people began to swarm the grounds.
