Description

Carolina Renaissance Festival Returns to Huntersville. For 8 fun-filled weekends, opening September 30th through November, the annual Carolina Renaissance Festival presents a full day of entertainment and pageantry as history comes alive with hundreds of costumed characters re-creating a 16th Century European Marketplace. It's a 22-acre village nestled in the forest and meadows, complete with castles, cottages, kitchens and pubs, filled with activities. You'll find music, comedy and theater, food and drink, fine hand-made arts and crafts, artisan demonstrations, games and rides.

Twelve stages offer an abundance of costumed performers offering continuous music, dance, comedy, and entertainments.  Unbalanced acrobats, the Ancient Art of Falconry, and the popular jousting tournament with horse mounted armored knights are all examples of the continuous entertainment options offered. Many of the shows are spontaneous and you will never know what happens next, on stage or off.

Shop an extensive array of craft vendors offering home décor, jewelry, clothing of renaissance and medieval fashion, blown and torched glass, handmade art and pottery.  There are also activities for children of all ages that include people powered amusement rides and countryside faire games such as the castle climbing wall, archery and tomato tossing at a fool.
