May 7th and 8th – Opening Weekend and Scout Days. Come celebrate our opening weekend and the start of the Mid-Atlantic region’s 2011 Renaissance Faire season! Special activities for Scouts including merit badge programs and discounted admission. Scouts in uniform pay only $5 admission this weekend. Pre-registration is required for some activities.

May 14th and 15th- Shakespeare and Fantasy Weekend: The Bard arrives in Staffordshire, bringing whimsy and fantasy to life. Come meet William Shakespeare, watch as the Mad Mechanicals perform Shakespeare with a twist and be dazzled by the Fata Morgana Bellydance Troupe.

May 21st and 22nd- Pirate Invasion Weekend: The shire is awash in pirates and privateers! The Pyrates Royale, Letter of Marque and the Overland Crew provide musical accompaniment to the invasion.

May 28th and 29th- Military History Weekend: We demonstrate Black Powder weapons, Pike Handling and other military activities. We honor our active and reservist military personnel by providing free admission this weekend to active and reserve service members. Must present military-issue ID.

Sweet, pirate invasion weekend!  :)  Had a good drive up there last year, very scenic.  Looking forward to going in a few weeks.
