Shane Adams with the Jubilee Renaissance Faire explains, “We have the wheel the death, we have sword fighters, we have knights in shining armor trying to kill each other on horseback. What more can you ask for? How about a turkey leg? We have those too!” The faire will also have delicious food, music, birds of prey, a famous war horse, and forty artisans selling medieval wares.
This Renaissance Faire is true to its time and is as close to historically accurate as you can get. Adams says, “Of course back in the olden age, we actually did have buskers just like Grant here on the wheel of death, performing all around. That’s how they made their money…tons of action. Hard hitting forceful action. And it’s 100% real. It’s not choreographed, it’s not theatrical. It’s 100% real.”
The faire workers are also taking safety precautions so guests can enjoy the Medieval atmosphere.
