Rising from the mists of Greenbrier Valley is the West Virginia Renaissance Festival! Bagpipers play to welcome King Edward and Queen Eleanor to the village of Essex and a grand joust will be held in their honor! Artisans and merchants of all sorts will market their wares! Savory foods and West Virginia local brews will tempt your appetite. Try your hand at games of skill, listen and dance to merry music, visit the petting farm, see the dragons, ride the unicorns, and be amazed by the skill of jugglers and magicians, rope walkers and whip crackers. Wander the forest of Broceliande, but beware the charms of the Faerie Queen Titania! It’s midsummer, what mischievous enchantments might she contrive?
