Ren Fairy
Explore a world of wonders with the Bay Area Renaissance on March 7th and 8th. Flight of Fantasy weekend unveils costumes, steampunk, and belly dancing like you have never seen before!

Visit the Fantasy Market in Piper’s Valley for a truly magical experience. Here you will find beautiful trinkets, enchanted masks, and hand-made costumes. This weekend will also be filled with competitive spirit and new experiences. If you don’t feel like competing, join one of the Daily Royal Events like Henry’s Happy Hour or Pig ‘N’ Swig.

New to the lineup of Daily Royal Events is Once Upon a Tea Time. Join the Princesses and some of your favorite fairytale characters like Rumpelstiltskin, Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and more, as they tell their exciting tales. Spend your afternoon with tea, lemonade, mimosas, delightfully delectable delicacies and a frolicking good time! Tickets are $15 per person and are available for purchase at the Festival Box office or online at http://www.Bayarearenfest.com.

Dancers of all skill levels are invited to participate in the Middle Eastern Belly Dance Competition. This event gives participants the opportunity to shimmy their way to prizes, with categories for both amateur and professional dancers. Onlookers will experience one of a kind performances by troupes and soloists from across the state.

The competition will be judged by Darlene Trieste from the Demzarrah Gypsies. Their live music, comedy and belly dance show has been entertaining Bay Area Renaissance audiences for decades. Viewers will laugh at the antics of this gypsy family and be amazed by the performances of the talented dancers. This popular family show features everything from swords to snakes. Its many fans attest that it will make great memories for years to come. Aside Darlene will be six professional dancers from the Tampa area. The judges combine for more than 60 years of experience.
