The smell of incense. Fairy dust. Jousting. Turkey legs. Pickle insults. Axes, purses, dresses and honey are just a few of the wonderful goods you’ll find…along with lots and lots of laughs. Yes, if you’ve been to the Michigan Renaissance Festival, these are very familiar, smile inducing memories. They are to us, too. Each year, we round out our annual birthday celebration for the kids on Labor Day weekend with a Monday trip to the Renaissance Festival. It’s a tradition.
If you’ve never been, you’ve got to take a time-travel adventure into the 16th century at the 37th annual Michigan Renaissance Festival! Join Queen Elizabeth in a jubilee! Inside the turreted gates, visitors enjoy the sights and sounds of a 17-acre village, complete with building reproductions of Renaissance shops, taverns and a magnificent castle. Continuous entertainment takes place on the streets and on 17 themed stages; featuring full-contact armored jousting, comedy and theater shows, music, games, people-powered rides and so much more! Fabulous food and more than 300 artisans displaying their gallery-quality works complete the experience! The festival runs on weekends and Labor Day from August 22nd thru October 4th! Festival Friday will be October 2nd this year.
