Clark County Parks and Recreation presents the 21st Annual Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival as it returns to Las Vegas Oct. 10 – 12.
Traveling back through centuries when knights and kings, maidens and wenches, minstrels and jesters ruled the world, the festival features more than 50 shows per day, more than 100 artisans, historical reenactments and plenty of food and drink to satisfy the masses. The festival also offers royal parades, full-contact jousting tournaments, no-holds-barred gladiator battles, black powder demonstrations, strolling minstrels, contortionists, magicians, storytellers, jokers, jugglers, flame eaters, belly dancers, trained parrots and pirates. Additional attractions include bow and arrow and axe target games, medieval barber and surgeon demonstrations and Renaissance guilds.
