The NY Capital District Renaissance Festival returns to Indian Ladder Farms in Altamont June 9-10. Event blurbage:

+ 50-plus vendors, including food trucks (turkey drumsticks, BBQ Sundaes, deep fried Oreos, and more!) toys, pottery, leather goods, blacksmith goods, tarot readings, clothing, costume rentals, etc. fun for the whole family;
+ Live jousts and sword fighting twice a day;
+ A pub crawl for adults( 21 and over);
+ Vixens en Garde,The Greatest Pirate Story Never Told, roving minstrels, magicians, belly dancers, mermaids, the Queen's Menagerie, face painting, a costume contest, vow renewals for married couples, puppet shows, and activities for children all day;

Because, as is well established, in the days of yore knights would return from their gallivanting adventure to feast on deep-fried Oreos. (Perhaps that meal was the death of Arthur.)

Tickets are $15 for adults / $5 kids 12 and under / age 2 and under free. Two-day tickets are $20. They're available online.

Any breweries or wineries going to set up shop and sell so that it is a real Renaissance Festival??

Indian Ladder Farm has its own cidery and brewery on location. It's fantastic and all the ingredients are grown within walking distance.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
