DRAGONS & GARGOYLES VISIT SONORA during October’s All Hallows Fantasy Faire. Dragons will be joined by walking trolls, gargoyles, minotaurs, elves, and warriors from the Dark Ages.

Patrons of all ages are encouraged to wear costumes and take part in this time period adventure!
Hard driving Celtic and European bands will provide music–bands featured include–Avalon Rising, Culann’s Hounds, 1916 (Irish Rock Band), and the Black Irish Band. Also performing will be three large Belly-dancing troupes that will embrace the spirits of the living and dead. Other action entertainment will include the Dare Devil Chickens Troupe, fire-eaters, jugglers, and magicians & wizards. There will also be many entertainers just for children!
The festival will feature a large ancient village complete with streets, walkways, and one very scary cemetery. Throughout the village there will be many fantasy themed vendor booths selling Viking and Celtic wares. Keeping with the spirit of the October Season, a large Viking Long-Hall has been created with strange hooded monks selling ale and whiskies. The village will also have a great selection of European foods, along with more common fare that adults and kids love!
