Come and enjoy The Original Renaissance Pleasure Fair in Irwindale. Think of this as a mini vacation and a journey back in time. Many people dress the part and join in the experience. Most of the musicians play period instruments: lutes, harpsichord, dulcimers, along with various woodwinds and horns.
Enjoy the magic of the music and the singing. If you’re curious ask the musicians about there instruments. Maybe buy a CD of something you find enjoyable.
There is something for everyone including a course in human relations Renaissance style.
When you get hungry, thirsty are both you’ll find food and drink to please any palate.
So grab a Turkey leg, Ale, Mead, water, and/or soft-drink.
The many shows throughout the day will keep you entertained. One I found was a local group, Sportive Tricks, that knew most every drinking song you could imagine plus regular repertoire. They would liven up any party. There was a variety of entertainment from strolling minstrels, jugglers, and puppeteers, to stage shows for all taste.
Take time to see the Birds of Prey show. It’s a little more wild then the ones you see in animal parks and zoo.
I hope you find some time to step back in time. Enjoy the adventure! Craig Lowe
