Come see us at Texas Renaissance Festival and Louisiana Renaissance Festival!

 

Visit us at Texas Renaissance Festival weekends Sep 30 – Nov 26, 2017 (also Black Friday, Nov 24)

Saturday September 30th, the Texas Renaissance Festival begins its 9-weekend season! This 55 acre village features over 200 performances per day on 20 stages, and several hundred shoppes containing the beautiful wares of artists and merchants. Located north of Houston, Texas Renaissance Festival has been entertaining faire-goes for over 40 years.

During these nine weekends, Renaissance Magazine will have a booth on the main entrance plaza of Texas Renaissance Festival. Stop by to say hello, renew your subscription, purchase a gift subscription (holidays are coming!), or pick up those back issues you need to round out your collection – all at a sizable discount!

Learn more about the Texas Renaissance Festival at www.texrenfest.com.

Visit us at Louisiana Renaissance Festival weekends Nov 4 – Dec 10, 2017 (also Black Friday, Nov 24)

After seeing the Louisiana Renaissance Festival in the pages of issue 112, wouldn’t it be great fun to see it in person? This faire is located just an hour north of New Orleans, across Lake Pontchartrain. Come experience the charm and hospitality of the idyllic Village of Albright during one of its six weekends.

Renaissance Magazine will have a booth outside the main entrance of the Louisiana Renaissance Festival, where you can accomplish all your holiday subscription and back issue purchases – at a hefty discount, of course!

Issue 112 – Sep 2017

In our Castle Lore issue, our scribes explore a variety of historic European castles in Spain, England, Scotland, and Germany.  Among those explored were Real Alcazar, Doune Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Drei Gleichen, and many, many others!
We also bring you tales of the Louisiana Renaissance Festival.  LARF has been extending its hospitality to locals and travellers alike for 17 years, and we have numerous photos and stories about it to share with you!
We hope you enjoy the above as well as the traditional array of comedy, history and quirky columns that each issue offers!

Issue 111 – Jul 2017

What’s in Issue #111?

Learn about Francois Villon, a poet and a criminal who wandered 15th century France living a life of mystery and mayhem.

Wax seals were a staple of medieval correspondence and law. Learn about the history of these emblems of commerce, love, and power!

Read the follow up piece to April Knyghts article on period instruments and learn about how she and other modern musicians use recreations of these instruments in their music!

(…and much more, but we don’t want to spoil the issue!)

Issue 110 – May 2017

Press “Rewind”, sit back, and enjoy a good read about Medieval Music in Renaissance Magazine’s Music Issue!

Bands, History, and More!

Ever wanted to know more about the bands you see and hear both live on stage and via our music players.  Learn history behind the Merry Wives of Windsor.  Go in depth with articles on popular groups Cantiga, Pictus, Saxon Moon, Tartanic, and Wine and Alchemy.  Chat with dulcimer player Vince Conway.

Then, once you’ve read up on current Medieval and Renaissance music, dive into the history to learn about Period Instruments, including a discussion of those found on the wreckage of the Mary Rose.  Of course, learning about the music wouldn’t be complete without a sampling of music creators such as the Women Musicians in Tudor England and the Wartburg Minstrels.

To round out your read, we’ve added in articles that will take you to exotic Budapest, show you an exhibit on Venice, give you some camping tips, a recipe to nosh on, and three bardic offerings to stimulate your brain.

Come join us as we dive into the past with Renaissance Magazine!
