School to host renaissance weekend

GREENVILLE — Kecia Bass, director of development for Phoenix Charter School, said because Phoenix is an art school, it would only make sense that it would host a renaissance weekend.

“Our kids are eclectic and artistic,” she said. “This is what we’re all about. We are about fine arts.”

The weekend will kick off on Oct. 19 with the Renaissance Masquerade Gala at the Landon Winery from 8 to 11 p.m.

“This event is for adults only,” she said. “There will be a costume contest, a juggler, and hors d’oeurves will be served at the event. Landon Windery has provided the entertainment for us.”

Bass said the reason the school is hosting the Phoenix Renaissance Arts & Crafts Faire is to be an active member of the Greenville.

“We want to be able to impact the community with our culture,” she said. “We just want to add to the culture of the city.”

The event boasts games, food, music and arts and crafts, and will feature performances by The Howling Blades and Knights of the Four Winds.

“We are going to have a Lord and Ladies Lair haunted house at the faire,” Bass said. “Great food will be available as well. We will have Bulvarian funnel cakes.”

According to Bass, she wants this event to help bring the community together.

“We do not want to be in competition with any of the other schools here,” she said. “Everyone is invited. I’d like for the city of Greenville to ccome and embrace it and have a great time.”

The faire will be Saturday at the Hunt County Fairgrounds from 3 to 8 p.m. Tickets will cost $5 for adults and $2 for children.
