The Kelley Farm Tacoma/Olympia Area
Aug 3–18, Saturdays–Sundays, 10 am–7 pm
Is your alter ego a hero or a villain? More importantly, which persona makes for a better costume? For the first portion of this annual three-weekend renaissance festival at Bonney Lake's Kelley Farm (aka the village of Merriwick), the real fun will be getting to dress up in your best 17th-century cosplay. When you’re not showing off your armor, your ominous cape, or your spindly fingernails (be creative), you can watch knights “vie for the favor of crown and court” in jousting duals, shop from an artisan marketplace, and feast like royalty on turkey legs and meat pies. The following weekend, take a journey through mystical realms alongside fairies, goblins, dragons, and other fantastical creatures. For the final weekend of the faire, plan to hunt for treasure with a crew of swashbuckling pirates.
