Joining us for Pirates & Wenches Weekend ONLY: The ScallyWags!
Since the dawn of time, there have been few certainties. The sky is blue, water is wet, and The ScallyWags are twisted. For the last two decades, there have been ScallyWags Pirate comedy shows in many locations. Now, for the first time at Sleepy Hollow, the ScallyWags pirate comedy show, where Captain Hook is the hero, Yoda leads the Red Eye Knights, King Arthur found the grail, Game shows are fun again, and a script is just a reference guide.

Faerie Queen Titania and her court join the cast of The Renaissance Faire at Sleepy Hollow during all three weekends: Vikings & Shieldmaidens Weekend, Kilts & Lucky Lasses Weekend, & Pirates & Wenches Weekend.
Faerie Queen Titania was first discovered wandering in the Middle Amana Colony of Iowa along with King Oberon, Princess Lily and Princes Argentum and Thistlefew. They then played in Omaha, Nebraska and Des Moines, Iowa. In 2007, King Oberon returned to the Faerie Realm. And Faerie Queen Titania and the children had a wondrous tree house built at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire to honor his passing from the mortal realm. Today the Princes have moved on to other pursuits while Titania and Lily continue to bring delight and magic to children and adults, in the area. A few various other fae have joined the Royal Court.

Siren Stefanie d' flute has been performing at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire for 10 years. She began as a fairy with the enchanted realm, playing flute in the lanes and for the fairy dance. Her character has grown and transitioned, becoming a lady in order to play music for Have Court Will Travel. You might find her in a bright, cheerful fairy dress, flitting about the village in billowing wings, or you might see her dressed as a lady, sedately making music in the lanes. The mellow sound of the flute provides a subtle background track to the day, adding to the atmosphere of our medieval village. She loves it when the sound of the flute brings a smile to the face of our village guests. Lady Stefanie's favorite part of her time at the festival has been the excitement and challenge of researching and rehearsing new music, the magic of having another musician stop and jam in the lanes with her, and seeing that music can bring enjoyment and peace to not only the musician, but to everyone whose heart is touched by a song.
September 2-4 | September 9-10 | September 16-17

Families throughout the Midwest love the The Adventures of William and Blackjack. Come see this storytelling bard and participate in his interactive stories all three weekends: Vikings & Shieldmaidens Weekend, Kilts & Lucky Lasses Weekend, Pirates & Wenches Weekend.
Most of all, come see the REAL star of the show, Blackjack the Dragon. Find out the true story of how William came to be friends with Midnight, the dancing stick. See if you are brave enough to sleep at Grandpa's Castle, or face the Dragon with the One Black Eye. Sometimes we will be in for a treat when the Ogres of the Deep Dark Forest dance for us. Join William in Looking for Dragon Eggs, and finding pirate treasure. Catch William between shows and ask for a Magic Dragon Bubble. Children have been collecting these rare dragon artifacts for over 15 years. See you at the Faire!

The Mez: Master Hypnotist will be joining us for all three weekends: Vikings & Shieldmaidens Weekend, Kilts & Lucky Lasses Weekend, and Pirates & Wenches Weekend.
Using the powers of hypnosis, The Mez will probe the limits of the subconscious minds of his volunteers who willingly submit themselves to be placed under his authority and control. There is no script. No one, not even The Mez ever knows for sure what will happen next. It's situational comedy at its best. If you have ever wanted to be hypnotized and if you are brave enough, you can volunteer to be entranced by The Mez and let him have his way with you. It's a family friendly show that you must see to believe.

Joining us with stunts and comedy for all three weekends: Molotov!
For over a decade, Molotov the Gypsy has been entertaining at renaissance festivals all over the United States. His style of comedy combines wit, audience interaction, and the guts to do some really stupid stuff, like set himself on fire, stick a sword down his throat, and try to impress women with poetry!
