The Arizona Renaissance 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 family adventure!
It is an outdoor event that combines entertainment and wares reminiscent of what may have been found in a 16th Century European village market celebrating the arrival of the Queen to their shire. Walk through our gates to be transported back to a simpler more jovial time. Mingle with over 2,000 costumed characters, eat a giant roasted turkey leg; take part in games of chance and skill.
Explore the Village! Browse through 200 artisan shops displaying their wares. Watch as the ancient skills of glassblowing, leatherwork, weaving, woodcarving, blacksmithing, jewelry making and pottery are displayed...IT IS A SHOPPER'S PARADISE!
