If this century’s forms of entertainment don’t quite cut it, the Sebastopol Renaissance Faire teleports Ives Park back to the village of Fenford, 1582. Historical figures like Queen Elizabeth and William Shakespeare walk among the theatrical performers, wandering musicians and jugglers. Cheese and lace-making demonstrations bring a bit of history back into this century, and vendors offer turkey legs, oysters, cheese, crêpes and more. It’s Much Ado About Sebastopol
, indeed, on Saturday, Sept. 17, at Ives Park. Willow and High streets, Sebastopol. 10am–8pm. $5–$12. 707.823.2123.
