The Idaho Renaissance Faire is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and operates on donations, sponsorships and grants. There will be a donation box at the entrance of the Faire and at various locations within the Faire itself and we are thankful for all your contributions. If you would like information on becoming a Sponsor please contact us at

The entrances to the Faire will be at the Canal Street Bridge, and N. Boise Avenue Bridge.  Parking is available in the designated lots on the south-east side of the park, and in the Canal Street lot. The Grounds will only be open to foot traffic due to the presence of many horses and carts, and to ensure the safety of everyone attending the Faire.  Handicapped parking will be available on the Island.  Please check in with parking attendants at the Canal Street entrance and N. Boise Avenue to be directed to handicapped parking and drop-off locations. There will be signs to help also. Handicapped parking is available by permit only, and all others will be towed.

Vendors, Merchants and Entertainers will be allowed to enter at the Island's north entrance to drop off equipment and supplies, but are asked to please have their vehicles to the parking lots before 10:30am Saturday and Sunday. This includes any trailers not actively being used for a booth. For more information for Vendors, Merchants and Entertainers, please contact the IRF directly.

Pets are welcome at the Idaho Ren Faire as long as they are well behaved around people and horses, are ALWAYS on a leash, and are cleaned up after. However, please keep in mind there will be loud noises, crowds, and other animals present; owners of disruptive pets will be asked to leave. 

We at the IRF work to keep the Faire a fun-for-all-ages and family-friendly event. We work seeking sponsors and support from local businesses, civic groups, and individuals to help keep the Faire an annual event and we thank them for their generous support.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have at

Today is

There are

In days of olde, when knights were bold And maidens were so fair
When dragons lived in forests deep, And wood-sprites scampered there
When plague as black as darkest night Was receding from the land
And lords in contests did partake, To win their lady’s hand
On an island in a village, A gathering was held there
Lords and ladies, knights and peasants, And merchants with their wares
Games and music and merry revelry, To delight your every sense
Come with us, step back in time, To the Age of Renaissance!
