The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska returned to the Bellevue Berry Farm after a one-year hiatus on May 1 and 2.
This past weekend’s festival featured live jousting, festival fare, a variety of merchants and live performances.
On May 8 and May 9, the festival will be centered on “Celts ‘n’ Kilts.”
Children will have an opportunity to make their own free Emerald Isle-inspired craft while the older folks have a chance to enter the Shapely Leg & Kilt Contest.
The second weekend will bring a new roster of artisans, performers and cast characters.
No weekend is entirely the same, but both feature a large selection of festival foods, adult beverages, original and unique merchandise, historical festivity and hands-on activities.
The Renaissance Festival of Nebraska will work with the Bellevue Berry Farm to post safety signage, event rules and to provide a healthy festival environment.
Single-day admission costs are $14 for adults and $8 for children, ages 3 to 12 cost. Tickets can be bought online at renfestnebraska.com.
