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, and averages between 30–40,000 participants every year. 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. The fair takes place yearly on the fourth weekend in October. The event is free and charges no admission fees to the public.
