If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, how about escaping back to the 15th century and taking a walk through the Renaissance Faire in Casa de Fruta? The faire runs from Sept. 17 through Oct. 16. Not only can you witness the tiny village of WIllingtown coming to life, but you can also enjoy dance performances, theater and traditional Celtic and Gypsy music.

If you’re excited for Halloween and just can’t wait to dress up, this is your chance to take advantage of the two-for-one ticket sale, for one weekend only on Sept. 17 and 18! Plunge into the experience and appreciate the artisans’ handy-work and designs while sipping on ale. Not to mention all the themed events where you can get your “Jack Sparrow mojo” on for the Pirate Invasion on Oct. 1 and 2. Bring your masks and garlands for the Bacchanal Masquerade on Sept. 24 and 25, and be captivated by the charm of the fairies in the Fantasy Weekend, which runs on Oct. 8 and 9.

It’s only $25, so don’t forget to be there from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Casa Fruta, 10021 Pacheco Pass (CA Highway 152), Gate 6, Hollister, CA. For more information, go to, [email protected] or call (408)847-FAIR.
