The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska
May 6 @ 11:00 am - May 7 @ 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!
In keeping with the theme of the first weekend, Roses and Romance, the first 100 ladies to enter the festival grounds on May 6 and 7 will receive a miniature fairy bouquet. Affection, passion, and the romantic intrigues of the royal court will lace together these two days filled with love and thoughts of fancy. Laugh and partake at The Betrothal Game, a witty twist to the TV game show The Dating Game. If thou likest it, then thou shouldst have put thine ring upon it. Love notes and secret admirers are sure to be found throughout the land!
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.
