Description of Your Faire: We are the horse of a different color festival that makes up for its size with an intimate family vibe.  We've got heart!  Our appeal is to the people who like this sort of a smaller faire experience, so take a step back in time & visit our seaport town…Porto del mare…for two fun-filled days of merriment and mischief in Renaissance Italy.  Stroll through the marketplace on a weekend full of food & beverage, where fortune telling, belly dancers, games, sea shanties, stage acts, and sword fights abound.  Revel with the Seadogs, those scoundrelly scallywags & maestros of mayhem, and many fyne performers from near & far. We have two stages overlooking a vineyard and the quaint Tuscan Village streets and courtyards. The Tuscan Village, Lower Lake, CA .  E mille e un incanto!
