Big Bear, Ca, August 11, 2011, 8:00am – The 10thanniversary Big Bear Renaissance Faire will take place this weekend, with guests experiencing a step back in time to an authentic Elizabethan era village of nobles, peasants, peddlers, gypsies, wenches, knights, jesters, troubadours and of course the most honorable Queen Elizabeth I and her Royal Court. Musical troupes, singing groups, comedy acts, belly dancers, strolling street performers and full-contact joust matches will fill the weekend, and everyone is invited to attend the special 10thanniversary celebration! Of course, the festival wouldn’t be complete without a food and beverage court that serves everything from plump, juicy turkey legs to scrumptious chowder served in a bread bowl. Guests should also expect to see full-costumed vendors and crafters hawking everything from plume-feathered hats to leather goods, and replicated medieval swords to fine crafted jewelry. The Big Bear Renaissance Faire will take place over the next two weekends, August 13-14 and August 20-21. The faire takes place at Pedersen Sawmill, located in Fawnskin at 39115 Rim of the World Drive from 10am to 6pm each day.
