Fun for the whole family. Arrive early to get parking and bring cash for the food and drink booths because ATM lines can get long. Great shows, fun music, wonderful characters wandering the streets, and handcrafted items everywhere.

A group of us have been going to the Festival every year on the day that seniors are free. We have a great time, and the food and entertainment keep us coming back every year.

There's nothing like a Renaissance Festival! Unique food, most of it on a stick. Beer and Mead. Performers like you've never seen. But why is it so hard to figure out who/what is performing where? And when you get there why why can't you understand...More
