The Carolina Renaissance Festival is a medieval amusement park, a 16-stage theater, a 25-acre circus, an arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament, and a royal feast - all rolled into one non-stop, day-long family adventure. It runs every Saturday and Sunday, from October 1 through November 20. Performances feature comedy acts, acrobats, medieval musicians, singers, dancers, storytellers, and magicians - continuously each day. The tournament arena where skilled stunt riders, outfitted in suits of armor, ride their horses into battle during 3 jousts each day. The Royal Kitchens serve a vast feast with giant roasted turkey drumsticks, steak-on-a-stake, pizza, bread bowl stews, salads, and more. Pubs serve beer and wine. You will enjoy the challenges of archery, ax-throwing, castle-storming, and climbing Jacob's ladder. The village is filled with over 140 open-air storybook shops and tents.
