RALEIGH - Over the next three weekends, the NC State Fairgrounds will be transformed into medieval Europe complete with a Queen and her court, jousting on horseback, period music and plays, and plenty of sword battles to boot.

The 2007 Renaissaince Faire will take place March 31st, April 1st, April 6th - 8th, and April 14th - 15th.  The extra weekend is an expansion from last year, when the event was held on only two weekends.  This year marks the 13th year of the large event.

Prices for the event are $12 for adults and for children and seniors, only $6.  On Easter Sunday, Adults can enter for $6 and kids and under 12 get in free.

The fairgrounds area is transformed into a medieval village with a food area serving such items as giant turkey legs and of course beer and mead.  Other areas include stages with entertainment acts that include jugglers, bagpipes, plays, magic, traditional folk dancers, and more.

Of course, the most popular event is the jousting on horseback.  The full contact event guarantees action as the crowd pulls for their favorite knight in shining armour.

A procession of the Queen is held regularly with her court including maidens, dukes, royal dogs, and others in her procession.
