Fawnskin Victorian~Steampunk Days
Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 10:00 AM - Sunday, June 10, 2012 at 6:00 PM (PDT)
Named as one of Westways Magazine's
"Top Five Worth The Drive" events in the western states!
Hosted in the lovely little town of Fawnskin, the event will showcase the entire nineteenth century, including Victorian, pioneers, the wild west, old miners, the American civil war, and we have the great joy of introducing you to a fabulous new group of people who call them self Steampunk! Come prepared to encounter literary characters and authors, historical figures, shoot outs in the streets, strange devices carried by the Captain of a Zeppelin, arrests and judgments from the "hangin' judge."
There will be period entertainment and games.
While not all visitors come in costume, a great many do. The site will be set up to cover both American Old West to English Victorian and beyond with vendors and five stage's worth of entertainment of both as well as performers filling the streets: watch out that you don't get caught up in a shoot out or thrown in jail! Of course, if you want to have someone arrested, we can swear out an arrest warrant for whatever charge you can dream up...
Welcome and Well Met

The Big Bear Valley Renaissance Society, Inc., is a non-profit corporation founded in October 2002 for the purpose of re-enacting historical time periods, such as the English Renaissance, for the education and entertainment of the public. We plan to do this by producing events and providing workshops. We are in the process of registering as a 501(c)3 non-profit educational corporation. The Renaissance Faire, our initial re-enactment, and all events are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
Our primary financial goal is to provide educational funds for the children and teachers. The funds will be used for, but not limited to, scholarships, teacher support funds and educational opportunities.
Our historical re-enactments provide meaningful and positive educational, athletic, artistic, and social benefits for the entire valley. In addition, the Renaissance Society events also provide increased business opportunities for the community. Our events will result in personal enrichment, enjoyment and a sense of community.
