Folsom's 18th annual Renaissance Faire brings 16th century fun to town on Oct. 16 and 17. The popular fair will be held in City Lions Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Attendees will journey back to the time of William Shakespeare as they stroll through a 16th century-style village brought to life by hundreds of actors in colorful period costume. There will be food and drink, handmade crafts and wares, and entertainment provided by jousters, jugglers, swordsmen, musicians and merrymakers.
