Texas Renaissance Festival

The Texas Renaissance Festival is where groups can explore the 16th-century with our 55-acre recreation of a European village – complete with costumed interpreters, artisans in period dress, and more. Groups will enjoy performances by jesters, magicians, jousting knights, and musicians. Activities include learning the art of falconry and courtly Renaissance dances, as well as watching live blacksmithing, pottery, and armor making demonstrations. 
A variety of group options are available, from birthday parties and picnics to group events and educational School Days.
