Every year we pilgrimmage to the Colorado Renaissance Faire for a step back in time to celebrate the “Renaissance”, its period, its history, its style, its mythology, and its memory. Every state in the United States’ pretty much has them and they last over a month in most areas. Many times the Renaissance Faire has taken part in Instrumental journeys for the Chronicles of Sir Thomas Leaf. So far I’ve enjoyed the experience in Colorado in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and now 2010. Either once a season or a few visits during the season usually takes place. The Colorado Renaissance Faire is an enchanting festival ground that hosts a fabulous annual Renaissance Faire, nestled in a wooded region just between Colorado Springs and Denver. The festival grounds are abound with village streets and pathways filled with over 100 costumed merrymakers from the Renaissance period or fantasy realm, revelers, artisans, performers, musicians, comedians, magicians, jousters, and jugglers … minstrels, fair maiden, cute faeries, elephants, and kid eating dragons! Of course a highlight for me is to always catch a glimpse of the gorgeous Twig the Fairy. The food as well allows from the creative to the barbaric, from the carnivorous turkey leg eating to a vegetarian artichoke pleasure. The shows are fabulous – especially the Celtic music, the bagpipes, the washing well wenches, the naughty Pirate pub, and comedy acts like Puke and Snot. The merchants sell hundreds of fine arts from glassblowing to pottery, jewelry, wood working, blacksmithing, leather working and more. As usual, this Fest was as fabulous as the others, though most of our time was consumed to naughty jokes while imbibing mead at the Pirate’s Pub in company of good crew. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
