With the rapidly changing developments that the Covid19 virus has brought about, and in the interest of public safety, DaVinci Con is sad to announce the postponing of our event dates to December 4th and 5th, 2021. Our indoor venue is sure to keep us warm and dry while we enjoy the festivities, food and fun of our inaugural season! Any advance tickets will be honored on these future dates. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you at The Original Renaissance Convention!
With the cancellation of the 2020 Inaugural season, DaVinci Con has been set back due to funds already spent for advertising, posters, tickets, souvenir shirts and mugs, and more! Purchasing a t-shirt, mug or poster would help us reclaim some of that lost revenue to put towards our event next season. Shop Below!
DaVinci Con - The Original Renaissance Convention (TM) is the first of its kind. So much more than your usual Ren Fest, The Original Renaissance Convention is a place to learn how to be a part of faires, learn about the history and skills of the period, and enjoy a Renaissance Festival all at once. Our indoor venue has room for a faire site, full jousting arenas, as well as classrooms for panels, and convention floor for groups and people to promote their organizations and themselves.
DaVinci Con offers all the excitement of a Renaissance Faire. Stroll the period village and shop your favorite craft booths. Take in a juggling or musical show at one of the many stages. Watch a spectacular jousting tournament or watch the falconer fly their birds. Sample delicious food and drink, and all while interacting with a costumed cast that brings to life the period of the Renaissance.
Like what you’ve seen at the festival? Stop by our convention floor and visit the organizations, entertainers and other groups that make it all possible. Learn how to be a part of the faire by sitting in on a panel, or take a class to learn a skill like juggling or costuming. Hear from the experts about the history of the period, how to become involved yourself, or just techniques that will make your next trip to a festival more fun.
