Grab your family and friends, dress in your finest medieval garb, and join your fellow royalty at the Doña Ana Arts Council’s 46th Annual Renaissance ArtsFaire, Saturday and Sunday, November 4 and 5, at Young Park in Las Cruces. You’ll be part of the Elizabethan era. You find yourself surrounded by peasants and nobles of the kingdom enjoying a pleasant day at the faire, perusing arts and crafts, being astonished by magicians and jousters, gnawing on turkey legs, and cheering on Robert the Ratcatcher as he flings the pesky vermin with his ratapult.

The 48th faire offers something for everyone, with fine art and handcrafted items created by artists from around the Southwest (not all related to the era you’re visiting that weekend), delicious food offered by and supporting area non-profit organizations, entertainment on several stages — including the return by popular demand of jousting on horseback, a beer and wine garden with local brews, and the rejuvenated Magellan the Dragon. The gates will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The 48th Annual Renaissance ArtsFaire is a bargain, with tickets only $10 per person and children 12 and under entering for free. Tickets are available in advance at the DAAC office at a discounted price of two for $15. Make the weekend even more special by purchasing a VIP package: $80 includes all-access passes for two people, access to the VIP area at the tavern with refreshments and up-front views of the main stage, plus a special area to watch jousting, preferred parking for one vehicle. A VIP pass for one person is $50. To purchase the VIP pass, visit the DAAC Arts and Cultural Center office at 1740 Calle de Mercado, Suite B-D or go to
