The earliest foundations of the gulf coast lie within the
Renaissance Era. It started in the summer of 1559 when
Tristan de Luna sought to establish a colony in the area now
known as Pensacola.

The new pioneers of history in Northwest Florida are looking

back to those beginnings. In 2001 Steve Melei established the
first Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire which was held on the
grounds of St. Anne's Church. After the awful devastation of
Hurricane Ivan, the Faire found a new home at the Interstate
Fairgrounds.

This event has expanded into a second Faire in Mobile, a

historically important area of the Gulf Coast. The fun, fresh air
and excercise of the event is great for every age. Patrons are
encouraged to come in costume, as the event seeks to forge
new bonds between the past and present.

Thousands will gather to witness the spectacle of armored

combat, the thunderous clash of jousters, the swirl of a
dancer's costume and to sample the wares of merchants who
have traveled from afar.
