Queen of England, ambassadors from foreign lands and juggling jesters, winsome wenches, lords and ladies, knight of horseback, squires and simpletons. They aren't just the stuff of fairy tales. They'll gather June 1st - 2nd & 8th - 9th for South Lake Tahoe's favorite festival, the 21st annual Valhalla Renaissance Faire. Be a part of history and come in costume, or come as you are and immerse yourself in games, theater and splendid Renaissance marketplace.
Drawing more then 8,000 visitors, the Valhalla Renaissance Faire is a unique entertainment experience and an extraordinary outing for children. The festival includes real jousting sessions and full armored combat between knights, along with culinary delicacies, craft demonstrations, ancient music, dance and comedy. Patrons will participate in archery, javelin throws, fencing, and fantastic costume contests. Activities for the children will include games, crafts, a petting zoo, puppet shows and storytelling, not to mention meeting Queen Elizabeth herself.
