Tens of thousands of history buffs and partygoers from all over Central Florida head to the Enchanted Forest in Tavares Nov. 2,3, 4 and 10 and 11 for the Lady of the Lakes Renaissance Faire. The annual event features dozens of vendors and merchants in addition to more than 100 performers donning authentic 16th century costumes to interact with and entertain fairgoers. The Lady of the Lake Renaissance Faire began in 2002, offering visitors an opportunity to step back in time to a magical, enchanting fantasy land created to represent an authentic European village. The Faire is an established member of a National Renaissance Faire circuit and features over 100 performers, representing various entertainments of the time – Knights in armor, gypsies, fire-eaters, pirates, dancers, merchants, peasants, historical characters and a variety of musicians. Artisans fill the village, working in mediums such as pottery, leather work, sculpture, and candle making. The crafts and entertainment combine with thematic games and foods to create a glimpse of marketplace celebrations of life in the 16th century.
