Every year, my family looks forward to a day at the Arizona Renaissance Festival! If you have never been before, it is such a fun event. It is incredibly kid friendly and always a good time!
The kids love watching the joust, watching the shows, and eating all the things!
There are options for any budget range. You can easily budget just for snacks and skip the games (think midways) and souvenirs. Or, you can make it into a mini vacation! It’s totally up to you!
Don’t miss Raucous Revelry at the Arizona Renaissance Festival! The Festival is a medieval amusement park, a 14-stage theater, a 30-acre circus, an arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament and a feast — all rolled into one non-stop, day-long adventure. You never know what you will find on or off the stage!
This unique outdoor event combines entertainment and wares reminiscent of what may have been found in a 16th Century European village market celebrating the arrival of the King and Queen to their shire. Walk through the gates to be transported back in time.
There is so much to see and do!
- Mingle with over 2,000 costumed characters.
- Eat a giant roasted turkey leg.
- Take part in games of chance and skill.
- Cheer on your favorite knight.
- Shop in over 200 artisan shops and select an inimitable gift for that special someone.
Eat Drink and be Merry is the order of the day at the Village of Fairhaven. Join the celebration and revelry! Just East of Apache Junction, on U.S. Highway 60. Let us know if you go! We’d love to hear what your favorite part is!
