How now good people!

We invite you to join us for our BEST YET annual Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians - Renaissance Faire, held the 2nd full weekend of October. 

Our 11th Annual Gathering will be October 13 & 14th, 2018. That is 2 days of great fun & carousing!  Our 2018 Faire is located somewhere in Southern Wisconsin. This is year our Faire will be held on the grounds of Circus World in Baraboo Wisconsin at 550 Water Street.  20 minutes South Wisconsin Dells and just a short 60 minutes North of Madison.

We are a small faire, perfect for a day trip, and you can't beat the price of $10 for adults, Youth ages 4-12 $5, children 3 & under free. (Volunteers are free, contact us!)
And by popular demand, we now offer a pass for the entire weekend,
just $16 for Adults and $8 Kids for 2 days of great entertainment
(MUST be purchased on or before Saturday of the Faire,
weekend passes CANNOT be purchased on the Sunday of the Faire)

You will find performers of all kinds waiting for you.  Singers, musicians, jugglers, thespians and others that defy description.  Military and other reenactors will show off their great weaponry and the joys of living during the enlightened Renaissance times. 
There is so much to do, no one will leave disappointed.

Young Lords and Ladies can enjoy the Kids Kingdom where they can try to siege the castle or attack a ship with a Catapult.

The whole family can try their hand at
shooting an arrow, or watch a game of Spanish Towers.

The more aged in the group can enjoy a beer at our Beer Garden while taking in one of our many great Entertainers or Artisans from around the region.
Our Beer Garden includes a large variety of beers,
featuring some local New Glarus brews and Mead from Bos Meadry!

We again will have pony rides where you are lead through the grounds as you imagine yourself as a Charming Prince, Beautiful Princess or a Brave Knight. 

Entertainers, crafters, artisans, food merchants, and other purveyors of baubles and trinkets are happily willing to trade with you; their wares for your gold. We have in attendance some of the best artisans in the region.
Food includes Calli's Pub, and of course BEER!

Thank You
Thank you to everyone who has attended and supported us through the years - patrons, vendors, sponsors, entertainers and of course our volunteers. We could not continue this without you. We had  less than wonderful weather in 2012. But since then we have had wonderful weather  and we have been overwhelmed by the support that we have received. Thank you! 

We look forward to seeing you at an even better Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians in 2018.

Who are we and why do we do this?
I would like to say because we were bored and like a good party. Well we do like a good party, but none of us are bored.  In truth we are Shakespeare on the Edge Inc a 501(c)3 non-profit, we got tired of selling candy bars to raise funds, so we started A Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians. All proceeds from A Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians benefit Shakespeare on the Edge Inc so we can continue to offer our programming to our community.  Go to Shakespeare on the Edge Inc. to learn more.
