Don’t Miss the Final Weekend of the Tennessee Renaissance Festival!

Time is running out to experience the magic of the Tennessee Renaissance Festival.

The festival, which takes place every weekend in May plus Memorial Day in Arrington, TN, wraps up this weekend, May 28-29. So, if you haven’t already had a chance to step into the 16th century, now is your last chance.

Here are just a few of the highlights you’ll find at the festival:

Timon, the Magician, Juggler, and Sword Swallower

Based in Berlin, Germany, Timon only does three shows in the United States per year. He has added his own odd twist to circuses, festivals, street performances, cabarets, and variety shows.

Timon and Giancomo the Jester from Empty Hats Knife Throwing Act

Timon and Giancomo have joined forces to create a thrilling knife-throwing act that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The Bardbarians

The Bardbarians are a theatrical musical group that delights audiences with Renaissance songs with a decidedly 21st-century twist.

The Grotto

New this year is “The Grotto,” where sea nymphs, also known as mermaids, will cavort in a magical pool and offer meet and greets several times a day. They are surrounded by a new group of vendors, including one that offers gossamer “wings” to twirl and shimmer.

Jousting Freelancers and Daring Horseman Duo

The Jousting Freelancers troupe will be partaking in games of skill and clashing swords and lances on horseback. Added to the jousting field this year is the Daring Horseman Duo, an equestrian acrobatic extravaganza featuring fearless bareback riding, daring flips, and breathtaking stunts.

Roll Your Destiny Role-Playing Game

Throughout the grounds, there is a role-playing game happening called “Roll Your Destiny.” It involves puzzles to solve, secrets to explore, and a magical journey to take with friends or alone.

Celtic Celebration

The theme of the last weekend is “Celtic Celebration,” so you can expect to see plenty of Celtic music, dance, and food.

Queen’s Tea and Fairy Training

The Queen’s Tea and Fairy Training events require an additional ticket. As of the writing of this article, Fairy Training was sold out for the last weekend, but tickets were still available for the Queens’ Tea. The Queens’ Tea has been moved to a larger space under a tent near the entrance. Adjacent to this tent is the Queen’s Promenade, where twice a day, participants can step into the resplendent ballrooms of yore and learn the elegance and skills that were once reserved for only the noblest of society.

Costume Showcase

A Costume Showcase will take place each day at 2:00 p.m., with awards presented by Queen Elizabeth and her court.

Castle Tours

Tours of the castle grounds will begin every day of the festival at 11:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m.

Artisans and Merchants

Dozens of artisans and merchants will be showcasing their talents in genres ranging from custom art to beauty products to jewelry and so much more.
