The Festival is a medieval amusement park, a 14-stage theater, a 30-acre circus, an arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament and a feast — all rolled into one non-stop, day-long adventure. You never know what you will find on or off the stage!
This unique outdoor event combines entertainment and wares reminiscent of what may have been found in a 16th Century European village market celebrating the arrival of the King and Queen to their shire. Walk through our gates to be transported back in time.
Mingle with over 2,000 costumed characters, eat a giant roasted turkey leg; take part in games of chance and skill; cheer on your favorite knight; Shop in over 200 artisan shops and select an inimitable gift for that special someone; there is so much to see and do.
Eat Drink and be Merry is the order of the day at the Village of Fairhaven. The Arizona Renaissance Festival is open Saturdays and Sundays Feb. 6 – Apr. 4 and Presidents’ Day Monday, Feb. 15. Just East of Apache Junction, on U.S. Highway 60!
