Artist Den – Ear ye, Ear ye… try painting like Van Gogh. The Renpark is normally the home of Renaissance Faires with art and culture… but we don’t have any of that so we would like to see what you can do in our Artist Den.
- Make your mark on our giant canvas mural with paints and markers. Help us create an artistic, and probably very lewd, memory for everyone to enjoy.
- Live Nude Models are waiting to give you inspiration for your next masterpiece. Grab a drink and choose between doing a pencil drawing or finger painting to capture the beauty of the human form. You are also welcome to bring your own drawing materials or set up.
The Pub Crawl
This year we have added a new pub making this a 4 location pub crawl. Four pubs, each with its own unique entertainment and contests. Shows and contests repeat every hour. Pick a pub to start with and rotate to a new one every hour to see everything.
Anne Bonney’s Blue Room
Featuring performances by Better Than Nun. Also, the preliminaries for the Wet Chemise Contest.
Featuring performances by the Clearly Guilty. Also, the preliminaries for the Dirty Limerick Contest.
Barbarossa Brothers Tavern
Featuring performances by the Medieval Medicine and Fishbones & Scurvy. Also, the preliminaries for the Kilt Contest.
Mary Reeds Pub
Featuring performances by Drunk & Sailor. Also, the preliminaries for the Lap Dance Contest.
The preliminaries for most of the contests will be held in during the Pub crawl which goes from 5-9 PM. There are 4 different pubs that will be doing the same show and judging the same contest once every hour so you can rotate between them and participate in all 4 contests if you so choose. Some of the contest require that you sign up in advance. Sign up form and descriptions below:
