Ten years of Finding your Fantasy at the Renaissance Faire
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Behold! As the village of Willingtown prepares to open its gates for the 2013 season, we are pleased to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Play Faire Productions, the first and only participant-owned Renaissance production company in the world. In 2004, a group of vendors, performers and artists, many of whom have been participating in Faire for over 35 years, formed Play Faire Productions with the goal of showcasing the finest artisans, actors and vendors ever seen. In the spirit of tradition born in California over 50 years ago, the Northern California Renaissance Faire brings to life a rich and vibrant 16th century Elizabethan era town.
Showcasing multiple generations of artisans and performers, the Faire offers a fully immersive environment filled with music, laughter, food and entertainment of all kinds. Brimming with authentic sights, sounds, and smells, the streets are lined with carefully selected artists showcasing exquisite handcrafted wares, astounding performances, and decadent foods. Romance is inevitable as knights in armor joust for the Queen's honor while ale and ciders flow freely. With an extensive cast of colorful characters, the village provides entertainment and amusement for all ages.
Staying ahead of the trends, Play Faire Productions was first to incorporate a Celtic Rock concert series, the Dockside Alley bawdy area (21&over), and an Enchanted Forest for younger guests. For more information, visit www.norcalrenfaire.com
