Welcome to the Georgia Renaissance Festival!
OUR 2014 SEASON IS NOW OVER - PLAN TO JOIN US FOR OUR 30TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON - APRIL 18 thru JUNE 7, 2015!
The Georgia Renaissance Festival is an interactive art and entertainment festival held each spring combining outdoor theater, circus-style entertainment, and an arts and crafts marketplace, all set inside our recreated 16th-Century European village.
As soon as the gates to our village of Newcastle open, visitors are transported to a magical medieval theme park full of fun and whimsy. Over 100 skilled artisans inhabit charming cottages, creating unique one-of-a-kind treasures for your shopping pleasure. Strolling minstrels fill the air with music, and our colorful village characters are always ready to regale you with a joke, a story, or just plain silliness!
You'll be hard-pressed to pass by one of our kitchens or pubs without sampling something delicious (usually served on a stick!) or a refreshing beverage. Hearty soups, sandwiches, corn on the cob, meat pies, fish and chips, and far too many tempting decadent desserts are the fare of the Faire. But the ultimate Renaissance treat is the mighty Smoked Turkey Legge! Tipping the scales at 1 1/2 pounds each, these are a meal unto themselves!
Ten stages provide a continuous schedule of music, comedy, juggling, and amazing feats of skill. Talented performers from across the Realm will delight and entertain you all day long!
