Artifacts: Faire season is here



Lords and ladies, get thee to the Central Coast Renaissance Festival on July 15 and 16 at Laguna Lake Park.

The festivities this year include 500 costumed entertainers and four stages of continuous live entertainment, with more than 25 stage shows performing plays, comedy skits, juggling, singing, music, dance shows, storytelling, comedic Shakespeare, acrobatics, a parrot act, and free-flying falconry.

There will also be a variety of food and beverage vendors with many appetizing food options, along with beer, ale, wine, and mead. While costumes are not required, if festival guests wish to get into the spirit, there are vendors who can help them with everything from period hats to shoes. Sunday is pirate day, and there is also a daily costume contest for kids with prizes.

Day passes are $15 for kids and seniors and $20 for adults. Visit for tickets and more information.
