I went to the VA Ren Faire when it was first re-opened. At that time it was a small faire struggling to get on its feet but the enthusiasm and level of knowledge of the period was impressive. Since that time it has grown in both size and professionalism. It is a pleasure to attend, both for entertainment and to learn the living history.

My husband and I spent a day at this wonderful event and had a terrific time. The cast was outstanding and engaged the patrons, the events were as close to authentic as possible, prices didn't gouge, activities appealed to all ages, and the location was lovely with enough shade to accommodate the guests. We'll definitely go back again.
