CLASH of AGES Renaissance Faire
On Saturday January 28, 2017, my husband, my sister and two of our friends went to the CLASH of AGES Renaissance Faire. This is an indoor event held in Birch Run, MI where the Renaissance, Viking, Pirate, Fantasy and Steam Punk cultures collide.
The event organized tried very hard to make this a fun and exciting event. They put a lot of work into the set up, displays and programming. It including activities for all ages including…
Watching combatants fight with swords
Admiring all the creativity, enthusiasm and effort of the Cosplayers. –My husband was suprised by the number of people who were displaying their love of these cultures via Cosplay at this event.
Watching a parade with participants playing instruments, carrying banners and wearing outfits from many different cultures.
Watching a baudy pirate show
Of course, as with any Renaissance Faire, there was plenty of vendors to peruse and shop at. Some our favorites were…
Buying Fairy merchandise
Perusing the ‘Hogwarts Shop’
Shopping for your favorite weapon.
You could even shop for items for your ‘cave’
The only draw back to this event that we can identify was that the usual atmosphere, like the forest or a castle, usually found at Renaissance Faires, was missing.
Overall, this is good event. If you are in the Birth Run area on January 29, 2017, I would recommend checking this event out.
