As a Raleigh, NC based organization, what better way for us to celebrate our namesake then to build a two day festival around him. Historic Interpretations, Inc. is proud to announce that it is hosting and creating the first ever Sir Walter Raleigh Festival.
Our dedicated members have been working and planning and, while there is not much information we can make public yet, we hope you will check out our site sirwalterfest.com. We are looking for performers, artisans, vendors, stage acts, and entertainers.
Sir Walter Raleigh's life is stranger than fiction and we think that the Raleigh and surrounding communities will love a celebration in this local heroes honor. Patrons will step back in time when knights were noble, maids were merry, and turkey legs were titanic and experience the 16th century and experience the arts, science, and culture surrounding the life and times of Sir Walter Raleigh in both European and New World History.
We present to you not a page in history, but a whole chapter!
Please stay tuned as MUCH more information will be added to this site in the coming weeks.
Contact us for updates and interest as well. We hope you will support us in this endeavor!
