The 5th Annual Albuquerque Renaissance Faire takes place 10:00 am-5:00 pm Saturday, April 29, at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum, 9201 Balloon Museum NE (just off Alameda west of I-25). It’s a Rain or Shine event…
A day of medieval activities is planned, including Music, dancing, magic, and more. From armored combat exhibitions and a Renaissance Village reenacting medieval life to Living History Demonstrations, there is entertainment for all. Stumble on entertainment that has traveled through centuries and over continents as you make your way around the grounds. There will be juggling, Faire Wear: Pet Fashion Show, a Free Children’s Realm, Village Shopping, and more.
Faire Wear: Pet Fashion Show: All attendees are highly encouraged to bring your favorite four legged family members! Don’t leave them out of the fun and be sure to dress them up for the Faire Ware Show. The Pet Fashion Contest will be at 1:30 pm on the battle field. Sign up at the event.
Tilted Tankard Tavern: Kings and Queens can take advantage of the opportunity to escape the hard life of running the Kingdom and spend some time in The Tilted Tankard Tavern. Enjoy food, entertainment, and libations from local vendors including St. Clair Winery, Quarter Celtic Brewery, Falcon Mead, Bosque Brewing, Broken Trail Spirits, and Boxing Bear Brewing. The Tavern is for adults ages 21 years and up. Beer, mead, wine, and spirits will also be available throughout the Faire.
