Now celebrating its 55th year, the Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire was the very first entertainment of its kind (thus The Original). Started as a backyard learning experience for her students by Phyllis Patterson, with the help of her husband, Ron, Ren Faire quickly became a yearly, then twice-yearly festival (with one in Northern California in the fall), with each season running six to eight weeks.
This year the Original Renaissance Pleasure Faire will be open Saturdays and Sundays through May 20, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets have climbed up to almost $30 for adults, so here are some discount coupons we found.
