Bristol Renaissance Faire 2019 – Weekend 6, STEAMPUNK INVASION
“Huzzah! Don your festival costume and join the #1 Renaissance Faire for family-friendly summer fun!
Open Saturdays, Sundays & Labor Day Jul. 6 thru Sep. 2, 2019.
We invite all our guests to dress up in your finest time-traveling attire. No matter which century you portray, we’re looking forward to celebrating a leap back (or forward) in time with you! Gas up your airship, pop-up your parasol, and dust off your cravat – because this weekend is going to be a steamy sensation!
This weekend only: The return of the Absinthe Bar (near the Lord Mayor’s Forum Stage), and a special visit from the Green Fairy.
Saturday: The Steampunk Promenade Costume Contest with Grand Prizes for the top three individuals whose costumes are the best handcrafted head-to-toe ensembles. Participants will be judged on their overall look and creativity, as well as an additional emphasis placed on ensembles that feature handmade or crafted pieces. Register at Guest Services any time before 2 p.m. to receive your entry number. Mingle at the Maypole from 2 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. for anonymous judging followed by a group photo. Join us at the Globe Stage at 5:30 p.m. as we announce the Champions.
Sunday: The Marvelous Steampunk Accessory Contest with prizes for the most epic handcrafted accessories! Judging will focus on creativity, uniqueness, and functionality.
