The 27th Annual Alabama Renaissance Faire will be held Oct. 26 and Oct. 27 at Fountain-on-the-Green (Wilson Park) in Florence.

This free event will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

A myriad of Renaissance period music will be played, including sea chanties, ballads, wandering troubadours and more. Theater groups, magicians, jugglers and other performers will also be in attendance.

Beggars, wenches, trolls, and wood sprites will wander the faire, and a foot parade will be led around the park by the reigning monarch and his entourage. Attendees can join in on easily learned medieval dances and visit craft vendors' booths of all sorts, including jewelry makers, bakers, clothiers, armor and chain mail makers.

A children's section will feature a haystack with hidden prizes and a child-sized sword-in-the-stone.

The food court will serve turkey legs, funnel cakes, fresh-roasted peanuts and other delicacies.

Throngs of people will be dressed as different Renaissance people, and all are encouraged to dress up in their own favorite Renaissance clothes.
