Shrewsbury Renaissance Faire

Grant Rd, Kings Valley. 10 am to 6pm. $7-$14

It’s time to get weird, folks. There’s jousting, horses, bards, dancer, and all kinds of other stuff I can’t pronounce because it’s old timey. There’s going to be over a hundred mini storefronts and something like 1,000 costumed folks upholding the atmosphere. Tons of fun for the whole family, and only a hop and a skip away. Also, don’t forget: you can dance if you want to, but don’t leave your friends behind. For more info visit,
