Carolina Renaissance Festival

For 8 weekends in October & November, nearly 190,000 expected attendees will time travel through Huntersville & Concord to escape to a more simpler time and place; the annual Carolina Renaissance Festival & Artisan Marketplace! The Renaissance Festival is a 16th century European style art and entertainment festival combining outdoor theater, circus entertainment, arts and crafts marketplace, a jousting tournament, a feast fit for royalty, and much much more. It was introduced in 1994 with 6 acres of exhibits, attractions and entertainment and has since grown into a 25 acre fictional storybook village filled with charming cottages and castles, kitchens and pubs, and a most unusual collection of people powered rides and games of skill.

This is one of the most interactive entertainment shows ever created with wonderful amusements and antics ongoing all around you! You can sit back and watch, or you can become a part of the action, surrounded by over 500 costumed characters roaming the festival village. The village lanes are full of peasants singing sea-faring songs and street entertainers surprising you with tall tales and tricks, each with a role to play. Click here for tour bus benefits.
