Moment of Ren

Hard to believe it’s already been a year since we tore up a turkey leg and took in a jousting match. The end of football season always marks the beginning of nerd culture here in the Valley with the Arizona Renaissance Festival and Artisan Marketplace.

The usual rides, feasting, and entertainment commence with new festivities, including the Cirque du Soleil-esque comedic acrobatics of Barely Balanced; a busty British burlesque act called the Mediaeval Baebes; 15th century poetry; and the extra-long handled instruments of world music band Wine and Alchemy.

Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Mon., Feb. 15, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Feb. 6. Continues through March 28, 2010
