What is the New World Renaissance Faire?
The New World Renaissance Faire is the brainchild of Eric Stoveken (Fight Choreographer Extraordinaire and local Author) and Brian DiBonaventure (formerly the Artistic Director for The Midsummer Renaissance Faire and the Kutztown Renaissance Faire). Its the tale of an acting troupe looking for patronage, while trying to keep their crazy director and his weird ideas of a lost Shakespeare play from ruining it.

It is being held on the grounds of The Museum of Indian Culture on the beautiful Lehigh Parkway in Allentown, PA during ARTIFEST. 2825 Fish Hatchery Road to be exact. Just minutes from Rts 78, 22, 309 and 222.
