Learn about Renaissance

The Tahoe Tallac Association and Historic Camp Richardson Resort, in conjunction with the Renaissance participants and actors, are offering a free educational program to students in the area.

Last year, more than 1,000 students visited the faire for a special introduction to Renaissance life, customs, music, armaments and costuming. The event is so popular the Tahoe Tallac Association and Camp Richardson Resort have expanded it to two days. The Renaissance educational tour, which will be June 6 and 7, is being coordinted by Juliet Tanzi. Because of the popularity of this activity, only 500 students will be accepted per day.

More than 100 street actors costumed as peasants, barbarians, soldiers, lords and ladies helping to recreate the atmosphere of an Elizabethan country faire – exciting, spirited and authentic. The campground is transformed into Shakespeare’s England, a world where Queen Elizabeth I rules England and modern inventions include the prevention press, the watch and the toothbrush.

The Valhalla Festival is scheduled June 2 and 3 and June 9 and 10. Attendees can park and ride free by shuttle from South Tahoe High School and the Snow Park.
