Gird Thy Loins for The Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire
The celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire is just around the corner.
Celebrate the transition from the Middle Ages into the era of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo with the Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire. Bring your best cosplay or leave the cosplay at home and soak in the Renaissance ambiance.
The Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire’s website explains that the festival tradition would include vendors bringing their wares and their families to the base of the city’s walls for festival days. The vendors would set up a temporary shelter for their families to eat, sleep, and play. Festival days would be a joy-filled occasion full of color, music, and laughter.
The 40th year of the Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire has free admission and includes food, vendors, and rides. Also included is a Candy Cannon blast-off, giant donut walk, and pie eating contest.
You might even catch a belly dancing performance or two from Desert Nomads, Hasana Tribal Fusion Belly Dance, or even the Ra Kumba Belly Dancing Troupe. You could possibly even see performances from Manis O’Tool and His Imperial Tibetan Yak Show, The Mad Harpist, Vinny the Bard, and much more.
Four days of Renaissance fun takes place at Cedar City’s Main Street Park July 12-15th. You can find out more about the Utah Midsummer Renaissance Faire at the link here.
