Sebastopol Renaissance Faire
Much Ado About Sebastopol Festival

Much Ado is become the regional Renaissance Faire in Northern California. A quality, family-friendly event in wine country that is entertaining and educational, as well as a long-term fundraiser for local Sebastopol public schools.

Wander around and interact with a myriad of villagers from 1578, make herbal soap or try your hand at weaving while listening to a wandering minstrel. Enjoy ice cold lemonade while watching the falcons and learning about their role in Renaissance farming. Sit back and take in a short Shakespeare performance while feasting on a hearty, rustic lunch.

Annual event: September
