Hello there! My name is Joan and I am going to be your tour guide. Today, we are going to visit a traditional Renaissance fair. We will be attending a famous fair in the city of Venice that lasts for two weeks at the beginning of summer. Come on, follow me!
We have finally arrived! Renaissance fairs were special events in which entire towns came together to celebrate. They were so large that up to 100,000 people could attend! Now, get ready to have some fun!
These people here are merchants and peasants. The merchants bring goods to sell or trade at the festival and buy goods to sell back home. The peasants might sell their produce from the countryside.

At Renaissance festivals, there were plays, floats, food, and sometimes fireworks. It was a great time to be had by all and men and women even dressed as each other!

A common thing to have at Renaissance fairs were bonfires. People especially enjoyed singing and dancing around them. Do you know any good dance moves?
Well, that concludes our tour of a Renaissance festival! Remember, Renaissance fairs were special events where entire towns came together. A few well-known festivals included St. John's Eve, St. Bartholomew's Day, and the Carnival before Lent. I hope you enjoyed your trip to a Renaissance fair!
