This weekend will be dedicated to Shakespeare and Fantasy. Come meet William Shakespeare, watch as the Mad Mechanicals perform Shakespeare with a twist and be dazzled by the Fata Morgana Bellydance Troupe.

Set in the late 16th Century during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the New World colony of Stafford features period costumes, shopping with dozens of food and craft vendors, live music shows and entertainment, free interactive historical crafts and re-enactments, archery demonstration and participation, all for children and adults. We also feature wine tastings and our very own lively tavern with period drink. 

Come visit us on the grounds of beautiful Lake Anna Winery, 5621 Courthouse Rd., Spotsylvania, VA, the Faire is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 AM to 5 PM, rain or shine, until June 5. Admission is $9 and free for children five and under. For more detailed information, a list of weekend themes and directions, visit the website at or call 703-508-5036.
