I love planning and I love festivals but I am sad to say that I have never been to the Ohio Renaissance Festival! We only live an hour or so away and not really sure why we’ve never gone besides babies and young children. The first weekend each year is Family and Friends Weekend which I have heard is really crazy and filled with people. I have read all about the fun theme weekends which include: Time Travelers Weekend, Pirates Weekend, Barbarian Invasion Weekend, OktoBEERfest, Highland Weekend, Romance Weekend, and Tricks or Treats.
Not sure which weekend we will be able to attend but I wanted to share with my reader’s all about the Ohio Renaissance Festival and even a special coupon code at the bottom of this post!
Forget your cares and step back in time to this 30-acre re-created 16th Century English village and enjoy over 400 years of fun in a single day! The festival offers something for everyone featuring nearly 100 shows daily on 11 stages, over 135 unique arts and crafts shops, hearty food and drink, games of skill and human-powered rides to amuse all ages.
Over 150 costumed characters welcome you to the village! Rub elbows with Royalty as you cheer your favorite knight to victory in the thrilling Full-armored Tournament Joust. Welcoming you to a festive day in the village are dueling swordsmen, rowdy pirates, nobles, peasants, and daring jugglers. The sprawling landscape is dotted with hundreds of unique shops in the Medieval Marketplace featuring many one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted items. See time-honored crafts of glassblowing, stone carving, blacksmithing, leather tooling, boot making, and more demonstrated. The air is filled with the scents and smells of the foods of the Renaissance period. Feast like Royalty on juicy, giant roasted turkey legs, fresh baked bread bowls overflowing with soups and stews, fish ‘n chips, steak-on-a-stake, succulent roasted corn on the cob and a wide variety of the finest ales and wines. There’s something for everyone’s taste buds!
Visitors of all ages will be amused by the games of skill and human-powered rides. Try your hand at archery and see if you’re a modern-day Robin Hood, or climb the castle tower and rescue the lovely damsel in distress.
