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.

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. With more than 60 merchants, over 200 costumed characters, and dozens of performers, this really is Nebraska’s largest Renaissance festival!
