Description

Walk the creepy alleys of a 16th century English-like town, play exciting highland games, watch the jugglers, knife and jousting shows, imitate belly dancers, engage in a longbow, hammer, barbeque, or even tomato throwing competition, feast on a delicious turkey leg, and taste mead during seven themed weekends each year in Shakopee, Minnesota. A reenactment of a fictional fantasy kingdom resembling England under the reign of Elizabeth I, Minnesota Renaissance Festival is an interactive outdoor event which aims to recreate the look and feel of the English Renaissance. Started in 1971, the festival is one of the longest running and largest Renaissance fairs in the US featuring over 700 entertainers on 16 stages, 270 craftsmen, and 120 food booths. Equip yourself with proper armor and weapons, take your lady and your offspring, and become the noble yet menacing knight you always wanted to be!
