The Alabama Renaissance Faire is a Renaissance fair held annually in downtown Florence, Alabama, in Wilson Park. The festival has been a celebration of Florence's "Renaissance City" identity since 1987,[1] and averages between 30–40,000 participants every year.[1] Activities taking place during the fair include arts and crafts, magicians, historical event reenactments, and musical performances. Some festival-goers attend while dressed in period clothing, and everyone is invited to do so.[1] The fair takes place yearly on the fourth weekend in October.[1] The event is free and charges no admission fees to the public.[1]
