 Here Ye, Here Ye…….
Celebrating 25 Years of Cheers at the 2013 Arizona Renaissance Festival!
Take a unique trip back in time to the Arizona Renaissance Festival. Not even in her wildest dreams would Queen Elizabeth have imagined a celebration such as this taking place in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains!
One of the largest events of its kind in the United States, this special event is a place to revel in the atmosphere of a 16th century European village! Join in the revelry every Saturday & Sunday from Now through March 31, 2013.
The Festival's 30 acre village is filled with 13 stages of nonstop entertainment; music, comedy, falconry, dance and acrobatics. Foolish pleasures mix with artisan treasures as you shop, eat and mingle with a cast of nearly 2,000 colorfully costumed characters.
Explore the village marketplace with over 200 storybook shops, studios and galleries filled with unique arts and crafts, handmade wares, kitchens and pubs, games and people-powered rides.
Kids love the interactive games and people-powered rides; Da Vinci's Flying Machine, The Slider Joust, Piccolo Pony-a rocking horse bigger than an elephant! The Dragon Climbing Tower, Castle Siege, the Maze, Archery Range and much more!
The live jousting tournaments are one of the festival's most popular attractions. Armored nights on charging steeds take up their lances and battle for the queen's honor. Cheer on your favorite armored knight at one of the three daily jousting tournaments in the 5,000-seat arena.
In addition to the revelry, the festival offers food fit for a
King. Attend the Pleasure Feast and be treated like a true Royal while you savor five courses of fine food, ample drynk, and enjoy an hour and a half of raucous Renaissance entertainment at its best! The Pleasure Feast, held twice daily includes admission to the Festival and a special edition Pleasure Feast goblet. Advance reservations are recommended.
Don't miss the NEW Living Fountain at Pan's Oasis.
Food is plentiful and available throughout the village. The menu is diverse with such offerings as steak-on-a-stake, vegetable and meat pies, pastas, bread bowls filled with hearty stews and more.
