Fire In The Shire

Fire In The Shire | Saturday, June 10, 2017

Join us for our our second annual Medieval/Renaissance Festival in Alma, Wisconsin!

Join us in starting the day with a knightly procession starting downtown in the Shire and leading up to Castlerock Museum. Events at the Castle included longsword & rapier demos, along with bow-making, woodcarving, coin-making and several other demonstrations. Throughout the Shire, there were Gypsy belly dancers, bagpipe players, a fortune teller, jugglers and The Wabasha Winds. Three performances of the Theater of Fools are offered at three different locations throughout the day, and contests will be held in conjuction with these performances to see who will win the keys that might open the chest containing the Holy Grail at the Castle!  The Princess Bride will be shown at the Big River Theater. Stop at the Shops of the Shire and can your vote on the most impressive medieval or renaissance-inspired piece of art. One lucky voter will win $100 Alma Dollars! And, of course, there will be plenty of Food & Drink throughout the day!  And don't miss the Masquerade Ball to be held at the Empire Room. $10 cover, masks and hors d'oeuvres included. Wear period clothing or black & white.
