The New Riders of the Golden Age from War Horse Farm in Sarasota, Florida, have been jousting professionally since 1982 and have appeared at Renaissance Festivals, state and county fairs and other events all over the USA and Canada.The use of Belgian, Percheron, Shire, and Clydesdale horses and full suits of period-designed 16th century tilting armor differentiates the New Riders of the Golden Age from groups and organizations presenting staged theatrical medieval jousts. The use of period equipment allows the New Riders to engage in an authentic full contact joust, and the great horses add an unmatchable sense of power and presence to the joust. Over twenty years of developing equipment, refining technique, and performing live at large outdoor venues have polished a unique presentation and confirmed repeatedly that audiences do appreciate the real thing.
Brilliant? Amazing? No, just adequate! Come see feats of
bizarre geek magic and stunts of sheer stupidity! Watch and
cringe as Zoltan plays with fire, swallows a four-foot balloon,
and more. With over a thousand live performances under his
belt, Zoltan will fool, delude you about how you were fooled,
deceive you about that delusion, and then bamboozled you
about the deception. Surely, a curiosity to be reckoned with.
Captain Thom Bedlam is landlocked, bored, and bursting
with thomfoolery. It’s a wild array of magical mayhem, the
sharing of vastly inaccurate knowledge and gregarious, if
ineffective, lessons on piracy. Of all the lying, cheating,
unscrupulous scoundrels you’ll ever meet, you’ll like him
the best. Not so much memorable as he is hilariously traumatizing.
The Harmless Danger Juggling Show has thrills, chills, audience participation, and more surprises than you can shake a baby at! His juggling will have the crowd in awe, and his comedic timing will leave you gasping for air. But, you know, in a nice way.
