The open-air festival and Renaissance fair includes live Shakespearian performances, fencing, food/beverages and Elizabethan games and costume play for children. The 2018 mainstage production is Romeo and Juliet, performed in true Renaissance style at Capital City Amphitheater.
SOUTHERN SHAKESPEARE COMPANY (SSC) is thrilled to, once again, bring their unique FREE Shakespeare in the Park Festival to Cascades Park. This year, the SOUTHERN SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL expands to four days and joins the ranks of some of the best Renaissance Festivals in the Southeast region. Visitors experience the magic and mystery of jugglers, illusionists, stilt walkers, and fortune tellers; the spectacle of armored combat; the taste of medieval food; and even learn a new skill, be it blacksmithing, weaving, or belly dancing. The Kids’ Kingdom lowers the drawbridge for the young folks and all visitors can enjoy the multiple programs and performances leading up to the mainstage production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, performed in true Renaissance style, on the Capital City Amphitheater stage at Cascades Park.
