In 2001 Steve Melei established the first Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire, now enjoy this tradition which celebrates our heritage.  The fun, fresh air and exercise of the event is great for every age. Patrons are encouraged to come in costume, as the event seeks to forge new bonds between the past and present. Come watch jousting, exotic birds, dancers and more!

The Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire celebrates the history and heritage of Medieval Europe, as well as the 16th-century Gulf Coast, with performances from fully costumed jousting knights, falconers, pirates, and royalty. Guests step back in time to enjoy the Medieval Village's arts and crafts from local craftsfolk and curious costumed performers.

 The Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire

At The Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire there are stages and performance areas set up for scheduled shows, such as plays in Shakespearean or commedia dell'arte tradition, as well as anachronistic audience participation comedy routines. Other performances include dancers, magicians, musicians, jugglers, and singers. Between the stages the streets ("lanes") are lined with stores ("shoppes") and stalls where independent vendors sell medieval and Renaissance themed handcrafts, clothing, books, and artworks. There are food and beverage vendors, as well as game and ride areas. Games include basic skills events such as archery or axe-throwing as well as other games of skill. Rides are typically not machine powered; various animal rides and human-powered swings are common. Live animal displays and falconry exhibitions are also commonplace. The Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire includes a joust as a main attraction.

   In addition to the staged performances, a major attraction of The Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire is the crowds of actors — both professional and amateur — who play historical figures and roam the fair, interacting with visitors. Visitors are encouraged (but not required) to wear costumes, contributing to the illusion of an actual Renaissance environment. Many of the fair vendors sell costumes for all ages and types. The Renaissance fair subculture's word for these costumed guests is "playtrons", a portmanteau of the words "patron" and "player", and they add a second level of enjoyment to their experience by "getting into the act" as Renaissance Lords and Ladies, peasants, pirates, belly dancers, or fantasy characters.

Jousting History


Jousting emerged in the High Middle Ages based on the military use of the lance by heavy cavalry. It transformed into a specialised sport during the Late Middle Ages, and remained popular with the nobility both in England and Germany throughout the whole of the 16th century (while in France, it was discontinued after the death of King Henry II in an accident in 1559). In England, jousting was the highlight of the Accession Day tilts of Elizabeth I and James I, and also was part of the festivities at the marriage of Charles I.    Read more...
