Operators of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Devore claimed Friday that San Bernardino County officials abruptly canceled the annual festival at a county regional park, disappointing entertainers, artists and children who were looking forward to the springtime event. "This unilateral action by the county is unfair," said Pete Leavell, head of Renaissance Entertainment Corp., which operates festivals in California, New York and Wisconsin.

The Renaissance Pleasure Faire, a popular Old World festival that has drawn thousands to watch jousting knights, jesters and Shakespearean plays, will not return to a regional park in Devore this year, San Bernardino County officials said. The fair was started in 1963 in North Hollywood by a teacher who had hoped it would teach participants about life in 16th century England. It eventually moved to Agoura and then to Glen Helen Regional Park in Devore.

"You put on this shirt and you feel like such a man," says Curt Rowley, showing off a rather blousy garment that matches his equally blousy cotton knickers. Rowley's ensemble also includes a feathered cap, leather boots laced to the knees and a handmade leather sheath hanging off his hip. Manly? Yes, in a Robin Hood-meets-"Braveheart" sort of way.
