Renaissance Faire and Fantasy Fest
More fun than you can shake a wand at. If you stand too close, you'll get GLITTER all over you!
Attire yourself in your most beautiful princess or faerie finery, dust off that Pirate coat and hat, don your wings or pick up a wand, belt on a sword or pull on an eye patch! Gather your friends and family and cross the threshold of the San Jose Fantasy Festival where characters from folklore, fairy tales, and fantasy will come alive to frolic for a magical spell of time.
The event is a family-friendly festival, a blending of myth and popular fantasy. Find yourself a part of a wondrous gathering of knights and princesses, as they stand side-by-side with elves and fairies, on a weekend filled with performances to enchant children and grown-ups alike.
