Event details

Come one!  Come all!  The Lakewood Ren-Faire is back for it's 40th anniversary!

All the following information is, of course, dependent on the SCA, Federal, State, and Local rules at the time.  However, things are looking like they will be similar to prior years.

There will be fighting.  There will be fencing.  There will be archery.  There will be a 10 AM parade both days to show off our finery to the public.  This is outdoors and open to the public from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday.

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events.  By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks.  You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the park.  Social distancing and masks are still highly encouraged.
