Renaissance Fair – Kansas City

Jousting with watermark

Karen and I have been to the Kansas City Renaissance Fair a few times and it never gets old.  A person could spend all day there if they wanted to.  Karen and I usually try to get there when they open up because it seems like every time we have gone it feels like it is 90 degrees.  We always stay for the parade and the first couple rounds of jousting.

There are many shows to attend while you are waiting for the jousting.  Shows range from musical talent to comical acts.  They have magicians and animal acts as well.  In fact, there is just about something for everybody.  The performers are very engaging and most people get into the act, and of course if you do not participate they will just hound you a little, but they are pretty good at leaving you alone if you do not get into character.

If you get tired of seeing the performances you can always go shopping at the many medieval booths that are set up throughout the grounds. There is a great variety of goods from art to weapons and wax roses to clothing.  We have never done any shopping there though once a long time ago I did buy a Kansas City Chiefs spear for my dad that he still has hanging up on his basement wall.

What Karen and I have really liked about going to the Renaissance Fair is that we have gone with family and friends.  It is so much fun going and just not worrying about life and jobs and work for a day.
