Founded in 1974, The Texas Renaissance Festival is the nation's largest renaissance event. Known for its themed weekends, performances, food and everything in between, the festival is a much-anticipated way to escape into a world of imagination.
“Between long-term favorites and new enchanting entertainment, shops, food and whimsical experiences, we’re thrilled to welcome back guests for the 47th annual Texas Renaissance Festival,” states Cory Brock, the Chief Marketing Officer of the Texas Renaissance Festival in a statement. “Approaching the royal festivities, our kingdom will be releasing new details for the lands to become educated with our offerings to all.”
The festival has something for everyone as attendees can escape into a 16th-century village. Featuring over 400 shops, the festival dupes as a shopping headquarters for unique and handmade items crafted by local artisans and merchants. In addition, there will be some familiar faces sprinkled throughout the weekend. Fifty world-renowned singers, dancers and other performers will grace stages across the 70-acres of festival grounds, including Amanda Kitchens, Dangerous Curves, and The Washing Well Wenches.
This year’s festival will feature a new addition called Del Lago that will offer a wine tasting, new shopping attractions and French tacos.
From Oktoberfest to 1001 Dreams and Pirate Adventure, every weekend of the festival’s run will feature its own unique theme. Just one hour north of Houston, the festival kicks from Oct. 9 to Nov. 28, including Thanksgiving, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
