Mercer Island’s Summer Celebration: Saturday, July 9th, and Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Good day, Good Sir and Lady! Prepare thy self for the upcoming Renaissance Revelry on July 9th and 10th. This year’s Summer Celebration introduces the Middle Ages to island living! From the city of Mercer Island:

Expect non-stop excitement with jousting knights on horseback, sword fight action throughout the day, roving entertainers, renaissance themed Magik Shows, Shakespeare performances by Wooden O’ Theatre, and so much more!

The Renaissance Revelry begins at 10 am on Saturday, July 9th, with the Grand Parade through Mercer Island’s business district. Throughout the weekend, there’s going to be plenty of activities and entertainment to enjoy. Check out all fun activities outlined on the Kids’ Fun Zone . The entertainment line up, and what stages each act will use, is located here. There will even be fireworks at 10 pm, July 9th, at Luther Burbank Park, thanks to the generous donations from the Mercer Island Community Fund and local business sponsors.

Windermere R.E. / Mercer Island will be participating in several facets of Summer Celebration. We will have a booth open all weekend staffed by our realtors and brokers . Children can participate in our annual coloring contest– coloring supplies and entry applications will be available at our booth. We are sponsoring the Windermere Stage, which will feature a variety of musical acts over the weekend. If you have little ones, “My First Garden” is a fun event to bring them to– it is going to be at 3 pm on July 9th, by the Pergola Stage. Our realtors will be on hand to help children plant flowers in a flower pot to take home and enjoy.

We hope you’ll check out all the Medieval fun at Summer Celebration. Stop by to say hello to us while you are there!

  1. Hi Robert,

    I had to ask Festival Director Amber Britton for a little help to be able to answer your question. The jousting will be performed by Seattle Knights. They will be performing 30 minute shows on Saturday at 12pm, 2pm and 3:30pm & on Sunday at 11:30am, 2pm, and 3:30pm. There’s more information about the Seattle Knight shows, and a link to their webpage, on the Summer Celebration 2011 Entertainment page: http://www.mercergov.org/Page.asp?NavID=2460

    Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you for stopping by Mercer Island Pulse!
