The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska
May 13, 2017 @ 11:00 am - May 14, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska, at the Bellevue Berry Farm, 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!
On May 13 and 14, join Queen Elizabeth and her court in a celebration of the Scots and the Irish during our Shamrocks and Shenanigans weekend. Shout your huzzahs and blow your bagpipe during the daily Kilt and Calf Contest. Is it the tartan they wear or the shapely legs that make the maids swoon? Come find out as we celebrate all things Celtic. Kids will have an opportunity to make and take their own free special shamrock craft at the Fairy Treehouse, and if they’re lucky, some may even spy a real live leprechaun!
A day at a Renaissance Festival wouldn’t be complete without giant turkey legs, funnel cakes, homemade root beer and a large array of other festival foods. There’s also a selection of adult beverages and, new this year, an assortment of Nebraska wines. In addition, a Renaissance festival is one of the few places that the general public may shop at an artisan merchant bazaar. The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska will boast a wonderful variety of leather, metal, glass, and wood craftsmen, along with jewelry makers, potters, blacksmiths, period clothiers, and fantasy artists, all of whom will have their wares on display for sale during these first two weekends in May.
A full day of fun, entertainment, and activities is only $13 for adults and $8 for children. Tickets can be purchased on-line and additional information found at www.RenFestNebraska.com and www.BellevueBerryFarm.com, and tickets may be purchased each day of the festival at the entrance gate of the Bellevue Berry Farm, located at 11001 South 48th Street in Papillion.
