Opening Saturday, May 4
Surely ye jest when you say you’ve never been curious about a visit to Muskogee's Oklahoma Renaissance Festival. With every weekend from May 4-June 2 given over to amusements and diversions of the 16th-century-European kind, Renaissance Festival brings out the princess, wigged nobleman, wench and highwayman in everyone. The sun shines down on merry ol’ Muskogee and its month-long fest complete with costumed performers and backdrops. The Castle of Muskogee welcomes all to its market with more than 120 artisan vendors; stages with dancers, musicians, acrobats and magicians; jousting knights; street performers such as jugglers; and children’s events. There will also be a masque ball, pirates’ feaste, Céilidh, the King’s Smoker and the Queen’s Tea. Tickets are $5.95-$12.95 per day purchased in advance or $7.95-$14.95 at the gate. Passes (2-days and season) run from $20.95-$49.95. Go online to www.okcastle.com for all the details.
