ABOUT US: We brought the first Renaissance festival to Des Moines in 1993. We only produce family-friendly events (we are NOT the faire that also produces an adults-only event). We support our vendors, and never ask them to sign any agreements that limit where else they can vend. Want to know more? Check out our history page!
