Renaissance Faire

May 13, 3-7pm

1123 Payne Street

Please join us for this free event!

We’ll have circus performers from Cirque Louis on stilts and eating fire and tumbling, larger-than-life puppets from Kentucky Shakespeare (made by Squallis Puppeteers), musicians, dancers, tarot readings, vendors, food from Ciao and Fond of Louisville, Fehr’s beer (another renaissance!), and even a proclamation from the Mayor’s office delivered by Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith! Face painting and silly photos in front of a themed painted backdrop alongside costumed kings and ladies of the court rounds things out.
