By Michelle Portesi

Strolling minstrels and Renaissance craftsman return to South Lake Tahoe’s Camp Richardson for this annual event. Step back into a bygone era and experience a bit of what life was like in the time of  Shakespeare, ladies in waiting, chivalrous knights and let face it, industrious peasants .

The Valhalla Renaissance Faire starts this weekend, Saturday. May 30th and Sunday May 31 and continues next weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 5, 6 and 7.

Fancy a turkey drumstick and an ale while watching a jousting contest? Then this is the event for you! Admire the elaborate Elizabethan era costumes on the Faire’s cast of players as they stroll the grounds, play concerts or sell their wares. Visitors are encouraged to join in on the fashion statements and there is sure to be a frilly frock or jaunty hat for sale in the midst of all the revelry if you don’t happen to already own such vintage attire.

A family friendly event, there are various shows and parades all through the day.  The most interesting venues however may be watching how food was prepared and goods were made  – by hand –  before automated factories came along.
