NY Renaissance Faire 2009

If you’re sad that summer Renaissance Faire season is over, don’t be! The Buffalo Humanities Festival has a number of free, outdoor Buffalo Renaissance Festival activities that you can bring your entire family to enjoy!

Come on by the Buffalo State campus at Rockwell Hall for activities like: public art for children, a fiber spinning demonstration, physical fitness bootcamp, GoBike, madrigals, a Sonnet Slam, live, impromptu performances of Shakespeare, social dance, and sidewalk chalk for everyone. There will be a special Kan Jam challenge at noon. What’s Kan Jam, you ask? It’s a popular outdoor lawn game invented in Buffalo.

And of course, volunteers dressed in Renaissance garb will guide people around. Keep your eye on our Facebook, Twitter, and this blog for more details.

While these fun family-friendly events are free and open to the public, a festival pass will get you into the great talks, conversations, live music, Shakespeare in Delaware Park performance, and indie films that are scheduled — as well as FREE ENTRY to the Albright Knox museum during the Saturday festival! Plus, if you purchase your ticket by Wednesday, 9/21, you’ll get a free lunch from the West Side Bazaar.
