Renn Fest Senior Weekend
King Henry VIII and Queen Katherine of Aragon open the 38th Renaissance Festival with the King summoning the Duke of Buckingham (you’ll have to go to the festival to find out why). Tour the Tudor village in courtier clothes (available to rent). Browse and buy from over 140 crafters who blow glass and make stoneware, jewelry, armor and more. Drink ale and devour turkey legs, steak and cheesecake on a stick from their majesties’ kitchens. Watch strolling jugglers, duelers and madrigals, and favor a knight at the daily joust. Play Renaissance-themed games. This weekend, get an extra day of historical fun as the festival continues thru Labor Day. Monday, all seniors ages 62+ enter free. Festival continues at themed weekends thru Oct. 19. 10am-7pm at 1821 Crownsville Rd., Crownsville. $17 w/discounts/day: 800-296-7304; www.rennfest.com.
