Renaissance Festival of Nebraska Celebrates a Decade at Bellevue Berry Farm
2018 will be remembered as Ren-Ten (www.RenFestNebraska.com), 10 years of Renaissance festivals at the Bellevue Berry Farm!
The first weekend, May 5-6, with its “Mythical Jubilee” theme, historical and fantastical creatures will lead our merry-making. These will be excellent days to spy a unicorn, witness the butterfly release or try to catch a fairy! The second weekend, May 12-13, “A Royal Celebration,” will be a grand observance of our decade of faires.
The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska welcomes Tricks of the Light. This trio brings heat with dance and rhythmic moves choreographed to live fire! Returning for their second year in a row are Topsy-Turvey, the all-female acrobatic troupe combining strength, grace, and flexibility with elements of dance, and gymnastics. Festival stages will be filled with performances of exotic dancers, comic improv, tall-tale storytelling, and old-world magic. Subdue your hunger with turkey legs, funnel cakes, homemade root beer or any of the other fun festival foods that will be offered.
The New Riders of the Golden Age bring new equestrian jousting programs each festival weekend. These hard-hitting jousters and their magnificent warhorses are a sight to behold. Round out your days’ worth of fun by visiting a historical re-enactment group, taking a chance at the many games of skill, and getting creative with free make-and-take crafts.
Celebrate with more than 60 merchants, over 200 costumed characters, and dozens of performers the first two weekends in May at the Bellevue Berry Farm.
