"The Wonder Elixir of Life is a half an hour of fast-talking and comedy, with a liberal dose of education and 'buyer beware' thrown in for good measure. Combining mountebanks, 'snake-oil' salesmen, and infomercial pitchmen, they surprise and delight their audiences with humor and juxtaposition. Drawing on many sources, and speaking in some of the smoothest fast-patter around, Dr. Duncan and Claire De Luna extol the virtues of their 'amazing elixir' and delight and entertain audiences in the meantime with small routines of 'fortune telling', magic, and humor."
Come see what happens when an arrogant knight and his bumbling squire come face to face with a sinister swordsman. Enjoy lots of laughts and some of the most exciting live steel broadsword fighting you'll see anywhere.
You know the old saying that goes "the couple that plays together, stays together?" That is true for "Gwyd The Unusual" and his partner "Sylver Fyre."
All ages enjoy his mad-cap comedy shows as he uses no ‘off-color’ material that may offend. Billed as a bombastic beguiler of bumbling buffoonery, his character ‘Lupe’ is especially endearing—performed in mask and spoken only in gibberish, this performance is perfect for audiences where variety languages are spoken. His juggling performances can incorporate pins, balls, fire torches, bowling balls—just about anything that he can lift! Perfecting his magic shows since he was a boy, these performances are completely awesome. Or, mix it up!
May 24, 25, & 26 2014
The Gypsy Roqs are a tribal/folk belly dance toupe. Our caravan features dancers of all ages and experience levels performing in a family friendly show.
E-Leesa the Gypsy Enchantress
E-leesa performs the ancient art of belly dance. Learned from the anciet egyptians E-Leesa brings from the far distant past the secret art of dance. Join E-Leesa as she weaves her magic spell at the Mayfaire Renaissance Festival.
Robyn the Bard
Hailing from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Doug Peterson approaches his music with irreverence and a sense of soul felt sentimentality. His sound has been likened to Cat Stevens, Billy Corgan, and Weird Al playing for a Victorian tea party after the wine has arrived. Performing a set, he can move seamlessly from a folk ballad, to a melodic hard rock anthem, into a quirky geeky love song, all while engaging his audience with anecdotes and personal stories. An evening with Doug is more than a concert— it’s a mad fantastical journey.
Bell Book & Canto
Bell Book and Canto has been entertaining audiences since 2008. With vocal harmonies ranging from simple counterpoint to complex cluster chords, their performances have delighted audiences throughout the Midwestern United States. While they dabble in all kinds of musical styles, their performances at this year's Mayfaire encompass a mix of traditional Renaissance music, original pieces (composed in a similar style) as well as Folk, Celtic, and cannon-style pieces. Come sit for a spell, and enjoy acapella music at its very best!
Pirates & Wenches
A Renaissance Rock Band that play a mix of covers, originals and traditional songs. We also play those ole salty sea songs. We have a belly dancer that dances to most of our songs. What more could you ask.
Just Happy to be here
Two of the worlds greatest pirates, Captain Duckman and his loving wife Jenniveve, have plundered nearly every ship that sails the seven seas. Bored, and on the run from the authorities, they've turned to stealing some thing even more important then money... laughter! But when you're stealing, it's always wise to steal from the best. So, come see them enact stage top piracy of the great bard himself, as they perform The Duckmans 'Romeo and Juliet' (the short version.) Shakespeare as it should have been... Funny!
