Renaissance Faire entering final weekend

Anthony Anderson

There’s one more chance for residents to visit the distant past as the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire enters its final weekend of medieval fun at the Kelley Farm in Bonney Lake.

This is the second year the Faire has set up at the Kelley Farm, on Sumner-Buckley Highway across from the Target.

This weekend’s theme was“Fantastical Faeries,” featuring artist Amy Brown, who was on hand to sign autographs and drew a constant crowd for photos and signatures on her fantastical artwork.

The faire also celebrated the magical world of faeries, trolls, dragons and more and attendees got into the spirit in full regalia from faires to knights, princesses and draogn slayers.

This weekend brings “Her Majesty’s Royal Masquerade,” a perfect opportunity to show off beautiful Carnivale or character masks, or visit our wonderful face painting and mask maker’s booths to become part of the magic.

Along with the themes, each day also features a full schedule of performances from jesters, jugglers, bards and magicians, as well as theater shows for the whole family – and some just for grown ups – and, of course, jousting tournaments daily.

The Faire is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for children with special rates for families, seniors and students.
