The Ottoman Encampment is a Renaissance Festival group with the aim of studying and recreating cultures located throughout Southeast Europe, parts of Central Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa before the 17th century, with a focus on the diverse cultures involved in the Silk Road. We selectively recreate the cultures by choosing components that are significant and attract us.
We interact with the public to entertain and educate. We love to put a smile on the face of everyone we meet and thrive to have patrons leave with an experience that will touch their life.
To enter our encampment, we ask that you bring an open mind and a willingness to learn something in the process. We serve people from all stations and exotic lands.
Perhaps you might even gain the favor of our court and become an Honored Guest… it’s been known to happen.
