LAKE HAVASU CITY - ARIZONA'S HOME OF THE LONDON BRIDGE!
The London Bridge Renaissance Faire began in 2015-2016 & included a New Year's Eve Royal Ball. The original idea for the event grew out of a Project Management class at the local Arizona State University campus in Lake Havasu City. Lake Havasu has the London Bridge & its very own English Village. The only thing missing was an annual Renaissance Faire! After meeting with the Lake Havasu Chamber of Commerce and the Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Project Management Group invited the Lake Havasu City London Bridge Lions Club to become the primary sponsor & beneficiary of the proposed Renaissance Faire. They graciously accepted the challenge. That first year was a great success, with around 5,000 in attendance. The proceeds from sales & sponsorship resulted in six $1,000 scholarships being awarded by the London Bridge Lions Club to ASU students attending the local Lake Havasu campus. A portion will also be designated to help fund our Renaissance Faire operations to make the 2017 event an even bigger success. The Lake Havasu City London Bridge Lions Club is proud to present the 2nd annual London Bridge Renaissance Faire, & thanks you for your support as we continue this new tradition.
If you’ve never experienced a Renaissance Faire, it is a festival with stage & street performers in period costumes, bringing medieval history to life in a fun & dramatic way! New this year at the London Bridge Renaissance Faire is Her Majesty's Tournaments of the Realm! This exciting addition will include spectacles in the arenas of Armored Combat, Archery, & of course, live Jousting on horseback. We'll also have jugglers, musicians, magicians, & a myriad of roving village characters & minstrels. Renaissance guilds will interact with faire-goers & populate the shire with their demonstrations & encampments. You’ll also find a marketplace with arts & crafts, where you can see artisan demonstrations & even participate; and delicious food & drink (including our Troll Under the Bridge Tavern); & Pirate's Cove, where the young & the young at heart can escape into a world of buccaneers, smugglers, and booty. Our unique location on Lake Havasu & the Colorado River lends itself to creating an exciting adventure for the whole family!
