Whether a Jester, King or Queen, all are welcome to spend the day letting the good times roll on Saturday, February 24th, in historic Culpeper Downtown!  Sponsored by Culpeper Renaissance, Inc.

With over 40 downtown shops and restaurants participating, you’ll be sure to discover engaging activities, a cornucopia of entertainment to enjoy, bayou inspired food and drinks to savor, plus retail specials and giveaways throughout!  Start your day with a magic show, by nationally recognized magician Wes Iseli, performing two shows, 10:30am and 2pm, at The Refinery.  While out and about, you may run into a Renaissance Character, that will not only delight you with their fashion, but will also entertain you with jokes from yesteryear.  Stop by the Depot/Visitor Center to enjoy a carriage ride, by Harmon’s Carriages and Training from 12pm to 3pm, along with Sandy’s Face Painting from 2:30pm to 5pm.  Plus, get your mug sketched by Caricature Artist, Daniel Ryman, located outside of Grass Rootes Kitchen & Cocktail from 11am to 4pm.  With many of these activities being offered at no cost, there is no reason you’ll want to keep the family inside on a day like this!
