Florida Renaissance Festival Returns to Miami for Its Second Conquest

After a year away from pillaging their village, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella rejoice with joy over regaining their kingdom in Miami, as the Florida Renaissance Festival returns for their second conquest at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park in Miami.
The Miami festival weekend dates are January 15 to January 23, 2011, including Monday January 17 for Martin Luther King Day.

Festivities will feature historical reenactments, sword fights, magical illusions and an abundance of authentic fare from freshly made kettle corn to roasted giant turkey legs, which can be washed down with a swig of mead or ale.

With the Florida Renaissance Festival returning to Miami, along come new and exciting acts combined with last year's favorites to delight event attendees throughout the festival. Faire Stories represents the blending of the magic and enchantment of traditional fairy tales, the joy and exuberance of Broadway music, and the unique interactive experience offered by Renaissance faires. Peter Suarez, aka "Manolete," a world renowned dancer, brings his many styles for the Miami show. He had the distinction of being the only dancer ever hired to perform a live solo with the Gipsy Kings at Radio City Music Hall. The Tortuga Twins are a multi-talented team boasting an extensive performance background with more than 30 years of comedic audience participation and improv experience to entertain all.

This 16th Century production features more than 100 costumed performers, five stages with continuous entertainment and stage acts from around the world.
During the family themed weekends, guests will enjoy jousting tournaments three times a day, hearty food, human powered rides and games for children that include the World's Largest Rocking Horse, Giant Chess, Barrel Rides, and games of strength and skill.
