St. Louis Renaissance Faire

If you want to party like they did in the sixteenth century, come to the quiet hamlet of Petit Lyon in Rotary Park (2577 West Meyer Road, Wentzville; 800-373-0357 or www.stlrenfest.com) for a celebration of all things Renaissance without the famine and pestilence. The St. Louis Renaissance Faire evokes the spirit of the age with colorful costumes, authentic food, merry drinking, armored jousting and nine stages of entertainment featuring comedians, magicians and musicians. More than 100 artisans will be on hand selling their wares and demonstrating woodworking and blacksmithing skills. Children's programming includes a petting zoo, games and period-themed activities. The festival is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (May 16 through June 14), and Monday, May 25. Admission is $8.95 to $15.95.
Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Mon., May 25, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: May 16. Continues through June 14, 2015
