This year’s Renaissance ArtsFaire is entirely virtual and takes place in the weeks leading up to faire day: November 7. Art contests, shopping, and entertainment are all taking places on line and the marketplace is now open! Entertainment takes place virtually from 1 to 4 p.m. Mountain Time with art content winners announced online as well.
Imagine five hundred years ago, half a millennium. In Europe, the Renaissance was spreading out from Italy and changing the arts, the architecture, and the attire, among other things, on that side of the Atlantic. As we lead up to the 50th Annual Renaissance ArtsFaire in 2021, we will be including more about what was happening on this side of the Atlantic as well. But in 2020, this is our “No Faire” and (virtual) 49th RenFaire. The focus is still on what has come to us through the centuries from the far side of the Atlantic. That said, there are some serious twists this year with RenFaire Auction, Marketplace, Contests, and Show all happening online. Please check out our website, www.daarts.org, to stay current on what we have going on. It may be “No Faire,” but we do have a fair amount of things to experience!
