Entertaining. Colorful. Fun. The Robin Hood Springtime Festival is your chance to experience what a spring festival might have been like in 12th century Nottingham England.

Tipping is always done at your discretion.

Here is some of what we have in store for you. Unless otherwise noted, all contests and special events take place on the Village Square at 2:00 pm.

Robin Hood returns to Nottingham after a winter tour of England with Queen Eleanor, and finds Nottingham…to be in very capable hands.

The royal parade winds through the streets of the Faire so everyone can enjoy the fun. If you’re dressed in costume consider marching with us or just watch the show from anywhere.

The Graces

Be enchanted by these sexy sirens of song with a glorious combo of innuendo and beauteous harmony.  These ladies will have you in stitches!
