A fairy tale’s spell is set to embark upon South Miami-Dade’s Cauley Square Historic Village when the Florida Renaissance Festival returns Mar. 30 to Apr. 14.
While entering the magical kingdom of the Florida Renaissance Festival, patrons will experience the “Days of Yore,” indulge in entertainment and fun from the renaissance period, satisfy their medieval palate with authentic food fare and drinks followed by rides, and games of skill and chance.
During the renaissance weekends, guests also will enjoy jousting tournaments by The Freelancers; sword fights by Buckle and Swash; widely popular high energy comedy stunt show Kamikaze Fireflies; magical illusions by Issac Fawlkes; Masala Gypsy Dancers; musical duo sensation Iron Hill Vagabonds; memorizing glassblowing demonstrations by Historical Glassworks, Royal Quest (interactive mystery and treasure hunt) and much more.
Back by popular demand, Predators Unlimited show — showcasing exotic animals such as tigers, lions, black bears, alligator and crocodiles, monkeys and snakes — is highly entertaining while delivering an important educational aspect of the Renaissance period in which the audience learns about each animal, its background, and its role during the 16th Century.
The Florida Renaissance Festival is produced by the nationally acclaimed Bobby Rodriguez Productions and strives to create an entertaining and cultural experience for adults and children alike. The sponsors of the Florida Renaissance Festival include Warsteiner Beer and Coca Cola.
