You won’t need a passport to travel through time during Time Travelers’ Weekend. This weekend is dedicated to adventurers across the centuries and embodies the spirit of recreating the past, symbolic of the entire festival. Open on President’s Day, Monday February 20th!
Masquerade - February 25 and 26
Everywhere you turn, peering eyes from behind a mask let you know that it’s Masquerade Weekend. Unleash your inhibitions behind the anonymity of delicately detailed masks, historic costumes and intriguing disguises! The Masquerade will keep your secrets, until you divulge your identity!
Wenches - March 4 and 5
Behind every good man is a wench in the trench. Wenches Weekend celebrates the women of the Renaissance with hourglass curves and firey attitudes, who can go toe-to-toe with their male counterparts.
Taste of FLARF - March 11 and 12
Eat and drink your way through the Renaissance during Taste of FLARF Weekend. It’s a feast fit for a King, as you indulge in foods reminiscent of the era, such as hearty turkey legs, Scotch eggs, Sheppard's Pie and an assortment of delectable desserts. Wash it all down with traditional mead and aromatic wines that you can freshly stomp yourself from the finest grapes!
Celtic – March 18 and 19

Vikings and Barbarians – March 25 and 26
Viking and Barbarians weekend is when you and your Norwegian brothers and sisters can wave your battleaxes, while covered in leather and fur, yelling with the fury of Odin. Only the strongest and most courageous warriors will make it through the final weekend!
