"Sir Francis Drake"

Shakespeare’s England comes to life at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire. Sir Francis is one of the hundreds of colorful characters inhabiting the Faire.

The Faire has nine stages of continuous entertainment, 164 Craft booths, hand powered rides, games, hearty English ales, fine wines and over 100 gourmet foods. Five parades cross the Faire throughout the day, including “Call of the Faire” to open the day, and a closing ceremonial parade.

The Renaissance Pleasure Faire runs seven weekends April 5 through May 18 at the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area in Irwindale.
