The Valhalla Renaissance Faire this year, in Lake Tahoe, was great. I wish they held it more times throughout the year. The weather was beautiful, and the vendors had tons of great things to sell. One of my favorite things about Ren Faires is the attention to detail. Nearly everything is hand-crafted and well-researched, which makes for an authentic experience (until you see the Queen of England pull her iPhone out of her bosom… hilarious).
