Got a need for mead? You'd better attend to it soon, as the Maryland Renaissance Festival in Anne Arundel County has just three weekends remaining: Oct. 10-11, 17-18 and 24-25.
The fairgrounds in Crownsville have once again been transformed into a 15th-century village, complete with acrobatics, jousting and, of course, plenty of enormous turkey legs to nom.
Live entertainers perform throughout the day each weekend; catch puppet shows, juggling, music and more. See the full entertainment lineup here. The fest will wrap up its final weekend (Oct. 24-25) with a special jousting competition "to determine who is the greatest knight in the land."
Dozens of food vendors and artisans will be offering their fare throughout; see the complete list here.
Tickets are $19 for adults, $7 for kids and $16 for seniors for single-day passes. Group rates and multi-day passes are also available.
