The Executive Director
of the Illinois Renaissance Faire
regretfully announces that due to a sudden, unforeseen family health crisis, the 2006 Illinois Renaissance Faire is being cancelled.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Come all ye Lords and Ladies, good men and women, young and old to merry old England in the year 1581. Queen Elizabeth I wants all in the land to join her at this glorious faire weekend.

Behold the brave knights as they battle for the Queen’s favor. Stage shows, jugglers, puppeteers and more will entertain you throughout the village. Come one, come all and enjoy the merriment.
