ALL HALLOWS EVE CELEBRATION @ Colonial Courthouse
Oct 25 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Halloween in Gloucester will never be the same! The 7th Annual Gloucester Renaissance Festival has moved from the sweltering mid-July heat to the coolness of late October…and right before Halloween! And with this move new activities have been added such as the Pub Sing and the Slayers of the Undead Archery & Axe Throw.

 With one step you leave behind all that you have known and with the next step you enter a world where Myth and Legend are Reality. Fall leaves waft through the chill Autumn air. The scent of spices, pies and roasting meat tempts your appetite while you slake your thirst with apple cider. Dress in your finest garb and dance the night away at the Masquerade Ball. Festivities begin Saturday morn at 10:00 am and do not end until the last note from the music at the Pub Sing which follows the Masquerade Ball. The Festival resumes Sunday morning at 10:00 am and concludes at 5:00 pm. Free to all that shall enter our Magical Realm.

 Activities include belly dancers Wicked Hips performing at the Gypsy Encampment, Parodi’s Academy of Medieval Martial Arts demonstrations, the Historical Swordsmanship Class, Willow Wisp Face Painting, wandering minstrel, fortune teller and an incredible Medieval Marketplace where one might find that perfect costume accessory! Bring the entire family.
