Amazing Arizona Renaissance Festival in Phoenix
The Arizona Renaissance Festival is an old-fashioned amusement festival based on the renaissance era. Arizona’s Renaissance Festival has been entertaining guests since 1989. Every year, a part of Apache Junction is morphed into a 16th-Century European kingdom that is open to the public. The Renaissance Festival usually occurs during the months of February and March, as these periods in the area are very warm and enjoyable.
What can you expect from the event There are many attractions in the fair, including a 13-stage theater, arts and crafts fair, circus, jousting tournament and king’s feast. There will be demos of weaving, jewelry making, glass blowing, blacksmithing and pottery throwing. The fair is non-stop family entertainment. The Royal Faire also features over 1,000 costumed characters, tons of craft shops, and shows every day during the event.
