The Moscow Renaissance Fair is now in its 41st year of celebrating the beginning of spring and the season’s long-held traditions that have outlasted time and place. The weekend-long celebration includes two stages hosting a variety of music, from fiddling and blues to traditional Jewish klezmer music. Always an event highlight is the Maypole Dance, a tradition dating back to Renaissance times. Vendors from across the Inland Northwest also give fair attendees the chance to peruse an assortment of handmade crafts and trinkets. This event, a staple of the Moscow community, breathes life into the beginning of spring.
