Step Back In Time At The First Ever West Virginia Renaissance Fair
The first-ever West Virginia Renaissance Festival is being held in the beautiful and historic city of Lewisburg every weekend through June 2018. The Renaissance Fair is sponsored by the Hanlon-Lee’s Action Theatre and Lewisburg’s own Hollow Hills Farm. Hollow Hills Farm is a 300 acre self-sustaining organic equestrian farm that offers riding lessons and trail rides, as well as venues for weddings and parties. There’s a lot to see in the area, like The Greenbrier Resort just down the road. Stay up-to-date with more fun festivals, cool concerts, and other Appalachian events with our events calendar.
The opening weekend is Warrior Weekend and offers free admission to veterans, active service, and first responders. The weekend of June 16th and 17th is Pirate Weekend, June 23rd and 24th is Celtic Weekend and June 30 through July 1st is Time Travel Weekend. So there really is something for everyone at this festival!
Are Ye Not Entertained!?
Lauryn Murray and her best friend, Lady Essex, an Asian elephant will be there to thrill audiences along with unique performers like Aaron Bonk. Known as the “Master of the Whip,” he will make you laugh, wince and gasp in disbelief with his juggling, whip cracking and dangerous stunts that include machetes, swords, and fire. His show is the “hottest one in the ‘shire!”
