If you’ve been craving an opportunity to wear a suit of armor, talk like Hamlet and eat giant turkey legs without fear of being judged by others, the final weekend of the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival may be what you're looking for.
The festival, which started August 23rd, ends Saturday and Sunday with its annual Oktoberfest celebration. The festival runs from both days from 10:30 a.m. to 6 pm. in West Newton (about 50 minutes from downtown). Details on location, prices and a list of events can be found here.
It’s also a great place to use all of that Monty Python dialog that you’ve spent years memorizing.
