A chance to experience life during the Renaissance in Broward County

January 29, 2013 by  

Now less than two weeks away, the Florida Renaissance Festival will allow guests to experience what life was like during the Renaissance.

The Renaissance, which took place between the 14th and 17th century, holds a lot of interest and intrigue to many, and most of those who attend the Florida Renaissance Festival dress up in period costume. The festival will celebrate that time with live performers, jousting tournaments, Renaissance-era rides and games of chance, street performers, and falcons. There will be 12 stages in all providing entertainment throughout the day.

In addition to this, there will be plenty of food and drink to be enjoyed during the festival – much of it traditional fare. There will also be demonstrations of skills, such as glass-blowing. Each weekend will also have a different theme and vendors will be selling Renaissance-inspired products such as clothing, wooden toys, and decorative accessories.

This festival is sure to draw visitors from all over Broward County, including nearby Davie. Organizers will likely be depending on local printing companies to help provide them with products such as flyers for marketing and banners to highlight certain areas of the festival.

The Florida Renaissance Festival will take place at Deerfield Beach’s Quiet Waters Park from February 9 to March 17 from 10:00 am to sunset each day. Admission is $20 for those aged 12 and up and $7 for those aged 6-11, while there is a discount for groups of 20 and over. Passes for the entire run of the event are $65 for adults and $30 for children. For more information, call 1-800-373-6337.
