ENTER TO WIN TICKETS TO THE 2017 ARIZONA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL!
The Arizona Renaissance Festival & Artisan Marketplace is 30 acres of adventure and entertainment for the entire family. To attend the festival is to experience the food, crafts, and performance arts of a bygone era in a unique medieval theme park environment.
The festival boasts 13 different stages and pavilions with continuous live performances ranging from juggling and circus acts to comedy and story-telling. There is a record-setting whip show, countless varied musical performances, and dancers of all disciplines. That’s not to mention the main events of thrice daily jousting tournaments and multiple demonstrations in the ancient art of falconry.
There are “people-powered” rides such as DaVinci’s flying machine and the giant Piccolo Pony, along with interactive games such as a maze, climbing wall, and axe toss.
The medieval style arts and crafts fair has more than 200 merchants selling (and often demonstrating) the artisan work of blacksmiths, glass blowers, woodcarvers, potters, and more.
Food and drink options abound ranging from pub fare (with the requisite turkey leg) to fresh-baked bread bowls and enticing sweets.
