The official Alabama Renaissance Faire is in Florence Alabama. The first Renaissance Month in Florence was in October of 1987. Today it is held on the 4th weekend in October each year. The 12th through the 16th centuries are celebrated in Renaissance faires. Authentic costumes, arts and crafts, and food are all a part of the Faire. Visitors can take part in medieval games and hear musicians playing authentic instruments.

 

The Florence Renaissance Faire became the official state Renaissance faire in 1988.
