Clark County Parks and Recreation presents the 26th Annual Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival Oct. 15-17, as it returns to Sunset Park located at 2601 E. Sunset Road, off Eastern Avenue. The festival will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and Oct. 16, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 17.

Event box offices will be open at the festival at 9 a.m. daily during the fair and will only accept credit cards at the door. No cash accepted.
This three-day event will immerse visitors in the Renaissance era with numerous villages, merchants, historical reenactments, live performances, and an array of authentic period foods and beverages.
Festival-goers will also have a chance to experience full-contact jousting tournaments from Imperial Knights and witness live combat battles and demonstrations. Some additional attractions include bow and arrow and axe-throwing target games. Medieval barber and surgeon demonstrations, Princess Tea Party and storytelling, a Scavenger Hunt, and Renaissance guilds will also be available. Live entertainment will feature music on various stages all three days.
“We are happy to bring back one of our most popular events in Clark County,” said Commissioner Jim Gibson. “Sunset Park is transported back in time with villages, Knights, great food, and vendors that make you feel you are back in the renaissance period. The Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival is truly an experience that has something for everyone.”
