Renaissance Festival Returns In May


Travel back in time to a 16th century English village of Covington Glen. Magic, Comedy, and Music await you along with the thrill of a royal joust, action-packed Pirate Show, Knight Wings Birds of Prey Demonstration, Heroic Robin Hood, and the saucy wit of Axel the Sot at the 2021 Renaissance Festival.

The Renaissance Festival Opens Saturday, May 8 and takes place every weekend in May plus Memorial Day!
