St. Louis Renaissance Festival 

When: Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 15 2017
Price: $9.50-$18.50
Renaissance fests come in for a great deal of mockery from the general public, and most of it is unwarranted. If you have something against jousting demonstrations, turkey legs and people dressed up as kings and queens (and that dude in Jack Sparrow cosplay who shows up everywhere) having a good time outdoors, that’s on you. Sure, much of the entertainment is historically inaccurate, but that mishmash of time, culture and historical figures doesn’t stop you from enjoying Game of Thrones. Speaking of, there’s a replica Throne of Swords at this year’s St. Louis Renaissance Festival, and it’s free to sit on for photo opps. Other attractions this year include jugglers, a mermaid cove, improv troupe the Scally Wags and the tart-tongued women in the Washing Well Wenches. Plus, apple cider floats. Apple cider floats — c’mon. This year’s St. Louis Renaissance Festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through October 15 at Rotary Park (2577 West Meyer Road, Wentzville; www.stlrenfest.com). Tickets are $9.50 to $18.95, and you save money by buying your tickets in advance instead of at the gate.
