Welcome kind traveler to Nottinghamshire where our harvest faire beckons you with beautiful music, sweet sounds and fine entertainment all gathered in one place just for you. Here on this page you will find information on our shire's many varied and interesting residents. From the pig farmer to the soldier, the milkmaid to the Lord Mayor. Rumor has it that even her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I and her entire court plan on spending a few nights in Nottinghamshire while on their progress throughout the country side.
Since the days after the Faire put on by the Living History Center left Agoura, there has been a desire to bring a more accessible regional Renaissance style event back to the Ventura County area. A group of dedicated volunteers from the community along with the Actor's Repertory Theater of Simi and the non-profit Simi Valley Cultural Association set out to make that dream a reality. The Nottingham Festival recreates the magic and revelry of an Elizabethan faire and marketplace with street performers and stage acts that provide entertainment for all ages. Craft workers and reenactors from various guilds entreat you to experience a taste of the handicrafts and lifestyle of the 16th Century. Our hope is that you will be well entertained and maybe even learn a thing or two about the time period and its people. Proceeds from this non-profit festival will be granted to smaller non-profit agencies in the surrounding communities, as well as set aside for the further development of the arts programs for youth.
