Our event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. We acknowledge with thanks;
The New Riders of the Golden Age, internationally acclaimed joust professionals from Sarasota, FL, will offer a different equestrian jousting program each festival weekend, three times daily. These true-to-life jousters will surprise and delight with their live steel swordsmanship and daring deeds, clashing with one another in genuine full-contact competitive matches. Everyone in attendance will want to witness the pageantry and peril that only these brave knights and their warhorses can bring to the battlefield.
Both weekends spotlight the amazing fire skills of Fandazzi Fire Circus from the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, as well as Topsy-Turvey, the all-female acrobatic troupe from St. Petersburg, FL. All five festival stages will be filled with on-going performances of exotic dancers, comic juggling, old world magic, and sing-along pub musicians. There is a daily Fairy Tea for the kids and a daily Mead Tasting for the grown-ups.
To round out your daily adventure, enjoy historical re-enactment groups full of informational fun, games of skill, hands-on activities, and free craft-making for the wee-folk provided by Nobbies of Omaha. With more than 60 merchants, over 200 costumed characters, and dozens of performers, this really is Nebraska’s largest Renaissance festival!
