First ever Woodlands Renaissance Faire September 24 at Rob Fleming Park Creekside
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Come one come all to the first ever Renaissance Faire in The Woodlands on Saturday September 24th from 4-9pm for this TOTALLY FREE event hosted by The Woodlands Symphony, The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation Arts in the Park, and The Howard Hughes Corporation.
Rob Fleming Park in Creekside Village will be filled with food, games, crafts, entertainers, and music by The Woodlands Symphony Players. Audience members are encouraged to get into the spirit and dress up in their favorite renaissance garb or just imagine being someone else for a day. Sign up to enter the costume contest to be held mid-point of the faire at 6:30 pm.
The Woodlands Renaissance Faire allows picnic lunches, chairs or blankets for the comfort of families whether staying a few hours or until closing. From the food and drink trucks you can purchase items such as Italian Ices, ‘Po Boys and turkey legs from Houston’s famous Turkey Leg Hut. Along with visiting the multiple vendors and artists throughout park there is face painting, a henna tattoo artist, renaissance combat demonstrations, drum circles and juggling with the court jester “Claude.”
On the main stage music fans will hear mini-concerts by the Woodlands Area Youth Symphony, the Woodlands Woodwinds and the Woodlands Symphony Brass as they play past the sunset for the grand finale. Darryl Bayer, Artistic Director of The Woodlands Symphony will be your host for the day introducing the ensembles and entertainers.
As in renaissance times, and throughout the ages, musicians will be accepting tips and donations from the audience. 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to The Woodlands Symphony as they continue to produce more free events and give back to the community each year.
