Nebraska’s Largest Renaissance Festival Returns to Bellevue Berry Farm in May
The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska, at the Bellevue Berry Farm (www.BellevueBerryFarm.com), will once again host two themed weekends filled with hard-hitting jousts and medieval merry-making, May 6 – 7 and May 13 – 14, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., retaining the crown of Nebraska’s largest Renaissance faire!
The New Riders of the Golden Age, internationally acclaimed joust professionals from Sarasota, FL, will offer a different equestrian jousting program each festival weekend, three times daily.
Both weekends spotlight the amazing fire skills of Fandazzi Fire Circus from the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, as well as Topsy-Turvey, the all-female acrobatic troupe from St. Petersburg, FL. All five festival stages will be filled with on-going performances of exotic dancers, comic juggling, old world magic, and sing-along pub musicians.
To round out your daily adventure, enjoy historical re-enactment groups full of informational fun, games of skill, hands-on activities, free craft-making for the wee-folk provided by Nobbies of Omaha, and festival foods fit for a king!. With more than 60 merchants, over 200 costumed characters, and dozens of performers, this really is Nebraska’s largest Renaissance festival!
A full day of fun, entertainment, and activities is only $13 for adults and $8 for children. Tickets can be purchased online and additional information found at www.RenFestNebraska.com and www.BellevueBerryFarm.com, or purchased each day of the festival at the entrance gate of the Bellevue Berry Farm, located at 11001 South 48th Street in Papillion.
