Gather One And All in Melbourne for the return of The Brevard Renaissance Fair

Brevard Renaissance Fair is annually held at Wickham Park in Melbourne, transforming Wickham Park into a renaissance-era European village.

A full cast of colorful characters fills the lands with music, dancing, and more.

With over 100 stage shows daily, varieties of foods and treats, and numerous artisan merchants with handcrafted wares, the Brevard Renaissance Fair invites guests to immerse themselves in a unique experience of history and fantasy!

This most regal of events takes place over not one, but five weekends, with each weekend featuring a different theme, Pirate Weekend, Celtic Weekend, Viking Weekend, and Fantasy Weekend.

The Brevard Renaissance Fair

The Faire showcases talented artisans and craftspeople from all over the countryside who display and sell a variety of goods, trinkets and wares.

Visitors to the Brevard County Rennaisance Festival will find one-of-a-kind blacksmithing, pewter jewelry, stone carvings, woodworking, weaving, hand-blown glassware, leather crafts and much more.

The excitement is electrifying whether you’re cheering on armored knights as they joust on the Tournament Field, or enjoying a show at one of the 6 stages of continuous entertainment.

Just when you think you are having fun, there’s more – Rides and games of skill that challenge those of any age; shoot arrows throw battle-axes.

A delicious food court where crowds indulge in sweet potato fries, blooming onions, giant turkey legs, as well as a variety of pastries and desserts, and don’t forget the Meade!

Fun for the entire family, young and young-at-heart alike. Children are made knights and ladies at the Royal Pavilion, where the King and Queenwill greet their loyal subjects.
