Fishers Renaissance Faire Finds a New Home in Saxony!

In its first six years of existence, the Fishers Renaissance Faire has delighted and entertained more than 80,000 patrons with a mix of comedy and drama, music, magic, jousting and combat demonstrations, shopping and eating. As plans for year seven begin, the faire has announced a move to a new location: Saxony Development, which straddles I-69 in Noblesville and Fishers.

The change in venue is a testament to the continued interest by the community and Renaissance Faire enthusiasts, who often travel hundreds of miles each year to visit. This is the second move for the faire, which began its existence at Fishers Heritage Park, which is now home to Ambassador House. After two years, the faire outgrew the space and found a new home on the grounds of Conner Prairie. The extra space and parking that Conner Prairie provided allowed the faire to expand and enjoy a pristine setting.

Now, in 2011, the faire will expand again in the size of its physical footprint. At the Saxony location, parking will be more centralized, allowing for easier accessibility, better access and visibility, and the flexibility to offer additional entertainment in the future. The faire cast is especially looking forward to the possibility of adding an extra weekend, taking the entire run for the Fishers Renaissance Faire from two days to four.

Unlike other Renaissance Faires, the Fishers Renaissance Faire continues to reinvent itself each year by adding new acts -- such as Shattered Shakespeare, the Battle Royal, the Knotty Bits and Three Pints Gone -- and new things to see to keep patrons interested and entertained.

The Sister Cities Association of Fishers, Indiana, presents the Fishers Renaissance Faire. A registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, it was established in 1995 to provide the Fishers community with a greater understanding of world cultures through unique interactive events. The faire celebrates the relationship between Fishers and its sister city, Billericay, England.
