COME CELEBRATE REN-TEN!
TEN YEARS OF RENAISSANCE FOLLY AT THE BELLEVUE BERRY FARM!
2018 will be remembered as Ren-Ten, 10 years of Renaissance festivals at the Bellevue Berry Farm, each year more magical than the year before!
Grand celebrations within celebrations will be the highlight for everyone in attendance at the Renaissance Festival of Nebraska. For the first weekend, May 5-6, with its “Mythical Jubilee” theme, historical and fantastical creatures will lead us in our merry-making. These will be two excellent days to spy a unicorn, witness the daily butterfly release or try to catch a fairy! We hope to see many people in their elven, mythological, merfolk, or fae finery, or simply joining in with these magical beings as they flood the festival grounds. The second weekend, May 12-13, “A Royal Celebration,” will be a grand observance of our decade of faires, heralded by the upper crust. The festival nobles will celebrate the grandeur of the occasion during the regal jousts, the majestic parade, and while interacting with all who attend the festival. Come as high-society, common peasant, or simply come as you are to the second weekend, and treat yourself like royalty!
The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska welcomes back Tricks of the Light after a short maternal absence. A favorite and staple of the Kansas City Renaissance Faire, this fire trio always brings the heat with their daring dance and rhythmic moves choreographed to live fire! Also performing and returning for their second year in a row are Topsy-Turvey, the all-female acrobatic troupe from St. Petersburg, FL, combining strength, grace, balance and flexibility with elements of dance, gymnastics and contortionism, daily at the Pirate Ship Stage. All five festival stages will be filled with on-going performances of exotic dancers, comic improv, tall-tale story-telling, old world magic, and sing-along pub musicians. There’s also a daily Fairy Tea for the kids and a daily Mead Tasting for the grown-ups. Or simply slake your thirst and subdue your hunger with giant turkey legs, funnel cakes, homemade root beer or any of the other fun festival foods that will be offered.
The New Riders of the Golden Age, internationally acclaimed joust professionals from Sarasota, FL, bring two new equestrian jousting programs for each festival weekend. These hard-hitting jousters and their magnificent warhorses are a sight to behold as they clash in genuine full-contact competitive matches. Round out your days’ worth of fun by visiting a historical re-enactment group, taking a chance at the many games of skill, trying out unique hands-on activities, and free make-and-take sessions for the wee-folk.
Come celebrate Ren-Ten with more than 60 merchants, over 200 costumed characters, and dozens of eclectic performers the first two weekends in May at the Bellevue Berry Farm
