The Alabama Renaissance Faire is a not-for-profit, non-commercial faire, organized by a Roundtable of volunteers who plan all year to transform Wilson Park in Florence, Alabama, into Fountain-on-the-Green. Faire-goers celebrate their favorite time periods from the 12th through the mid-17th centuries, as Vikings hobnob with Buccaneers and fairies frolic with pirates. The official Renaissance faire of Alabama is family-friendly and educational with no admission charge or alcohol. Come be part of our 35,000 visitors during the fourth weekend in October.

 Our Faire became the official Alabama State Renaissance Faire  in 1988

by Legislative Act no.88-43

        The faire takes place from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The admission is FREE. Parking is FREE. Food and Souvenirs are NOT Free.

We are an all-volunteer event. Those who work for the faire as staff earn no money from the event. They simply have a love of the time period and a desire to share that love with others within the community. Even our director is a volunteer.

Speaking of volunteers. Have you wondered how can I help with the Faire? The answer to that requires a few easy steps, one of those would be to contact our Chairperson: Billy Warren @ (256) 718-5020; you could reach out to us on our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/alrenfaire.org/) or come to our monthly meetings. The meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month at Noon, at the City Hall Auditorium on Pine Street across from the Escape Room.

Our faire is  smaller compared to many commercial faires;  but what we lack in size, we more than make up for in atmosphere and good down-home southern hospitality.

The Alabama Renaissance Faire is held in downtown Florence at Wilson Park – on the corner of Tuscaloosa Street and Wood Avenue. Florence, Alabama is located 120 miles south of Nashville; 145 miles east of Memphis; and 125 miles north of Birmingham.

 

How are we doing?
