~ MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT ~
With pirates boasting and spinning tales, brave knights jousting for the favour of the Queen, with tinkers, and gypsies dancing, and minstrels stroll through village lanes for your pleasure. Villagers and performers of every type will surround you with varied and entertaining sights to amuse and please our audience. Watch the Maypole dance, or perhaps the Mummers winding their way through the town to save us from the danger of plague. See the Queen’s falconers practice their ancient science and meet the Master Falconer and his beautiful hawks.
Visit our demonstrations of skilled craftsmen. Follow the progress of the Queen and her court of fair ladies and noble lords. Sit at one of our stages with continuous performances throughout the day. Jesters and storytellers, magicians and fooles.
You are sure to find something to make this one of the best ways to spend a summer day or weekend!
Our Entertainment in 2019

Traveling bard and collector of stories. I have found that there is a great joy in a story well told or well listened to.
Bound By Fire
We are a Dancing Gypsy Group! We Spin, Dance, and set ourselves AFLAME!!! – Poi refers to both a style of performance art and the equipment used for engaging in poi performance. As a performance art, poi involves swinging tethered weights through a variety of rhythmical and geometric patterns.
External Combustion Orchestra (3rd Weekend)
We are a band in the Kansas City area performing almost entirely original music. Creepy, angry, sappy, rockin’ music. Music that will get you swaying, and then make you stop and think, “Wait, did they just say…?”
Five Rings Fencing
Founded by Coach Mark Wickersham in 1997, Five Rings Fencing started at the Kansas City Renaissance Faire, where Coach Wickersham was determined to use historical fencing to get modern sport fencing better known in the area
Ozark Mountain Gypsies (2nd & 3rd weekend)
“While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life. I can only be joyful and whole. That is why I dance.” -Hans Bo
Swords & Roses – (1st Weekend Only)
Today the company consists of 10 women who run 2 and 3 person shows throughout the St. Louis and surrounding area. High energy, funny, and engaging. Everything we do has our audience in mind, and our job is to make sure you have a great time.
The Plague Doctor
A plague doctor was a special medical physician who saw those who had the plague. They were specifically hired by towns that had many plague victims in times of plague epidemics. Since the city was paying their salary they treated everyone, the rich and the poor.
Raven Wing Gypsies
A group of traveling nomadic tribesmen and women, we entertain in the village of Hartsgrove during the WhiteHart Renaissance Festival. Singing, dancing, and putting the rhythm into any song is a small part of what we do
Ezra N Dilly (3rd Weekend Only)
This notable duo has been entertaining the Ozarks and surrounding area with their classic and comedic talents for many years. When Ezra and Dilly are near, you always know it by the sound of a huge crowd singing and laughing.
Dimitri the Mage (2nd Weekend)
For over 20 years I have had the pure pleasure of performing magic for countless family and childhood celebrations, renaissance festivals, and even the International Special Olympics. The absolute look of wonder on the kid’s faces was the best compensation I could ever ask for.
Judas & Magnolia
Where to find the daring escape artist Dr. Judas Lynch and his kooky assistant Ms. Magnolia Strange? When not on tour or at festival, they’ll be in and around the St. Louis area with their variety of tricks
Thistle Green (2nd & 3rd Weekend)
