One of the largest theatrical events in Washington

Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire takes place over three weekends in August at Kelley Farm in Bonney Lake, Washington. Thousands of visitors are drawn to the fair by great food, music, jousting, games, and performances. You can observe how noble knights challenge each other for Queen and Country, have a drink at the Ale House Wenches, watch magicians and the puppet show, as well as dance with the fairies. Camping is also available close to the fair grounds.

The highlights of The Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire include world-class fencing demonstrations, country dancing, live music, questing, workshops, and hundreds of costumed characters like pirates, merchants, the Mad Hatter and more.

Special theme weekends include A Cosplay Adventure—the biggest costume party of the Northwest. The Enchanted World of Faeries & Goblins is a weekend dedicated to everything magical: unicorns, fairies​, dragons, trolls, and goblins. A Pirate's Plunder: Swashbucklers & Scallywags is a weekend of nautical pirate fun activities like a treasure hunt and much more. The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on all three weekends.
