One of my favorite things about the arrival of fall is the return of the Texas Renaissance Festival. My husband and I used to attend this event annually, pre-children. This year we are so excited to introduce our kids to the Ren Faire. Kids 12 and under get in free every Sunday, so you can guess which day we’ll be there!
The Texas Renaissance Festival is the nation’s largest and most acclaimed Renaissance themed event. Established in 1974, the event attracts over half a million visitors each year to its 55-acre New Market Village and Fields of New Market Campgrounds in Todd Mission, Texas. This immersive experience features world renowned live entertainment, works by master artists and craftspeople, award winning food and drink, hand-powered rides and games, and over 100 interactive characters during its nine themed weekends from September 30 through November 26, 2017. For more information, please visit www.texrenfest.com.
Each weekend, a different theme comes to life across the 55-acre festival grounds including:
Oktoberfest (September 30 & October 1)
1001 Dreams (October 7 & 8)
Pirate Adventure (October 14 & 15)
Roman Bacchanal (October 21 & 22)
All Hallows’ Eve (October 28 & 29)
Barbarian Invasion (November 4 & 5)
Heroes and Villains (November 11 & 12)
Highland Fling (November 18 & 19)
Celtic Christmas (November 24, 25, & 26)
I’m really excited about the Celtic Christmas weekend. My little ones will be so delighted to visit with Santa! I’ll be sharing lots of pictures and details from our experience at the Texas Renaissance Festival, so keep checking back for more pictures.
