Here ye here ye! Come one come all to Hillsboro, Oregon to the 2014 Hillsboro Renaissance Faire as Gaiscioch stages an all out assault on the festivities. Join Foghladha, Donaliam, Yulishka and more. 

The Joy of the Renaissance Comes To Hillsboro This Summer!

This summer, the Washington County Fair Complex in the city of Hillsboro will host a re-creation of a 16th century European village for 13 days of merriment, The Oregon Renaissance Festival of Hillsboro! Bringing together some of the most talented artists and non-stop amazing stage entertainment, this is an event not to be missed.

A renaissance of the Renaissance! Improv theatre surrounds as the village streets bustle with characters to greet you. Immerse yourself in this joyful celebration of life, love, laughter and drama. Marvel at the pageantry of a day in the life of the Queen, her royal court and village merchants.

History comes alive along with your imagination! Thrill to see knights in shining armor in a live Jousting Tournament. Throughout the village, beautiful maidens, wandering minstrels, joking jesters and jugglers abound. Magicians, acrobats, comedians, swordfighters, pirates and fairies entertain and delight, all the while you feast on renaissance-inspired food and drink by some of the best food purveyors in the land. Savory turkey legs, steak on a stake, bangers & mash, chocolate covered cheesecake, cappuccinos and much more!

Enjoy a unique shopping experience where you will find handmade jewelry, pottery, woodworking, leatherwork, fine metal craftsmanship, renaissance clothing and much more. See one of a kind creations made right before your eyes during skilled artisan demonstrations. Entertaining games, and unique hand-powered rides are sure to keep you wondering how time flies so fast in the past.

Join us and celebrate with continuous laughter, the many surprises that await you in the joy of the Renaissance!

For those coming to the renaissance faire let's meet inside the front gate near the Royal Pavilion at 10AM. I will be wearing a Gaiscioch T-shirt (yeah I know not in costume boo. wanted to but didn't have time.) Should be able to recognize me.  

10AM is proving to be more difficult than I had thought. Make it 12pm.

Neat, I've always wanted to try one of these festivals.  I used to have several friends in SCA, sadly I've lost touch with them over the years, but I remember that they always talked about what a blast they had.  I can't do one this year, but good to know that these are still around, so maybe sometime.

We'll be there. I didn't have time to do anything about costumes, so we're planning on renting some there.
