Overview
More
Be transported back in time and experience 'all the fun of the faire' in Bristol's annual Renaissance Faire. Be entertained by jugglers, jesters, aerialists, and acrobats, and watch knights battle on horseback for the king's favor. Try your hand at axe-throwing, fire a cannon, and wield a crossbow before settling down for a show of fire eating, puppeteers, minstrels, and dancers. This is a festival where literally anything is possible.
