The 35th Annual Central Coast Renaissance Festival features four stages of entertainment including authentic music, dance, plays, comedy skits, acrobatics, a pirate bird act, and free-flying falconry.
The main attraction is full force armored combat as seen on The History Channel’s “Knight Fight.” Twice daily contests include one-on-one single combat, as well as brutal team battles of 5 vs 5, which will be contested until one team is driven from the field.
The family-friendly event includes face painting, games, a magic show and a pirate ship where kids can attend Buccaneer Boot Camp to learn swashbuckling with balloon swords. They can board the pirate ship for photos. Sunday is “Pirate Day” with a treasure hunt. A costume contest for kids is held both days and every entry gets a prize.
Shoppers love the unique artisan marketplace where a wide variety of delicious food and drink will keep everyone refreshed.
Adult tickets are $20, seniors (age 65+) and age 6-15 are $15. Under age six are free. Use promo code SLOCal when ordering online and take $2.00 off every ticket purchased.
Parking on site is $8 per car, but reduced to $5 if there are four or more in a vehicle, so carpooling is rewarded.
