Ye Olde Renaissance Faire

It was finally that time of year that my mother & I take our yearly trip to The Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Irwindale, CA. It's one of my favorite things to look forward to in the summer, I love the opportunity to dress up and revel in all the fun to be had at the faire.

Our trip this year was last minute since the last few months seemed to fly by, so we endeavored out to the Santa Fe Dam area on the Saturday of closing weekend, which was a tad warmer than I'd hope for but didn't damper our fun any-less.

We had some ahh-mah-zing fish & chips, which is always a favorite of mine, and a delicious strawberry tart to fill my belly while enjoying some of my favorite faire entertainment, Moonie & Broon. (I was a complete nerd and had to get my photo with each of them this year, since I've always talked myself out of it in the past...)

As always my day in the past flew by far too quickly, and now I must begin the countdown till next year's pleasure faire. (Seriously, why can't we all wear cloaks more often? It makes you feel like youre in a fairytale and I absolutely love it)

Maybe by then I will be able to convince my mother to dress-up a bit more. ;)

To find a Renaissance faire near you in the US, peruse this website.
It's choc-full  of great information and an impressive directory of Medieval, Pirate and many other faires of related themes!   


  1. Never even heard of a Renfair here in Australia, but I think I'll put it on my to-do list for when I visit the US, How exciting! You look so gorgeous in all the photos x

  2. Looks like a lot of fun. You make a very sexy renaissance lady. Your outfit reminded me of Red Riding Hood from Once Upon a Time.

    Will have to see if those fairs come to the East Coast
