Merrie May Faire UPDATED

Time travel to Elizabethan England for an afternoon with William Shakespeare and friends. Join San Anselmo Public Library as we host the Guild of St. George for our Merrie May Faire. Your time travels will include:

§ Interactive Shakespeare. All the world’s a stage, so come act out some of Shakespeare’s famous lines. Show us your best death scene, and maybe learn some new insults.

§ Falcons and hawks. Learn how to train your falcon. See (and hear) trained birds fly on command. Our falconers love to answer your questions about birds and their role as hunters.

§ Music and dancing. Listen to the music that Queen Elizabeth listened to, and learn some new but old dance moves.

§ Crafts. Meet craftspeople and learn how people made things before industrialization.

This outdoor event is Saturday, May 5, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM on the San Anselmo town lawn at San Anselmo and Tunstead Avenues. It’s free and wheelchair accessible. For more information, please contact (415) 258-4656.
