Bounding Main at the Bristol Renaissance Faire
Bounding Main returns to our home port at the Bristol Renaissance Faire, multiple-year winner of the Best Renaissance Festival in the Renaissance Festival Podcast Awards!
Located just off of Highway 94 at the Illinois-Wisconsin border, this venue is one of the oldest and most popular events of its kind. We will bring our inimitable renditions of maritime music to those 40 acres of historical costumes, entertainment, musicians, food and shops on Saturday and Sunday for two weekends this year!
We’re still in the middle of a pandemic, so please be kind and safe and follow the rules that are in place for this event.

This event is held at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  The Faire day runs from 10:00 am until 7:00 pm.  This is an outdoor event at a theme park in the height of summer in the American Midwest, so expect hot temperatures and high humidity.  You can get more details about the venue on their web site:  https://renfair.com/bristol/

Our Music

“Though my sails be torn and tattered, and the mast be turned about, let the night wind chill me to my very soul,
Though the spray might sting my eyes, and the stars no light provide, give me just another morning light to hold…”

“A Sailor’s Prayer,” Rod MacDonald, 1978. Recorded with permission for Bounding Main’s Maiden Voyage album.
