The Bloomington Renaissance Faire event usually features fire eaters, belly dancers, magicians, jugglers, comedians and live re-enactments of medieval and renaissance combat. Food includes garlic herb roasted turkey legs provided by the Runcible Spoon. There were free juggling lessons from the IU Juggling Club. The event boasts free admission for everyone. The faire usually takes place in Dunn Meadow (near the Indiana Memorial Union). The faire has 4 running stages, a large historical reenactment area (including a blacksmith and a combat area), a somewhat less historical but equally large marketplace area (handmade jewelry, children's toys, leather goods, tarot, henna, etc, etc...), and a variety of other interesting attractions.
