There is a story I’ve heard telling of two very wealthy pirates that decided to retire from the business & settle down. While drinking at the local tavern, the bar maid overheard their conversation & quietly told the pair, “If you want to retire, you must have a shire.”  So they began making plans to create their village. It took many months & many trips on many rivers before they found the perfect place to build. They recruited villagers to be a part of this new & exciting adventure, built shops where people could work, & houses where they could live. They even built a tavern & gave it to the bar maid that had given them the idea. They took great care of every detail.  Life was the way they had dreamed it should be, & they lived happily ever after.

The villagers of Havashire are the descendants of these courageous people who decided to take a chance for a new life. We are the inhabitants of the land near the blue green water. We are farmers, peasants, wenches, & every sort of merchant you can imagine. You may also find Fairies, Elves, Leprechauns & maybe even a Troll or two.  But they do like to hide.  We’ve also become a place for Pirates that want to retire from the open sea & settle down without being harassed. Just don’t tell the Queen…  Stop by their encampment to get a glimpse into life with Havashire!

Our Havashire Guild is a modest, humble group of local cast & volunteers from Lake Havasu & the surrounding areas. Each member of our guild will interact with faire goers in unique ways to make the London Bridge Renaissance Faire a truly unforgettable experience that will be cherished for years to come.
