2014 Arizona Renaissance Festival
Celebrating 26 Years of Cheers, the Arizona Renaissance Festival will reopen in 2014 every Saturday and Sunday, February 8 through March 30, 2014.
The AZ Renaissance Festival is a medieval amusement park, attraction with a 13-stage theater, 30-acre circus, arts and crafts fair, and jousting tournament -- all rolled into one non-stop, day-long family adventure. The Renaissance Festival is held near Apache Junction, Arizona- between Phoenix and Tucson.
Renaissance street shows and entertainment
One of the most popular attractions at the AZ Ren Fest is the live jousting tournaments held three times daily, complete with knights on charging horses, clanging weapons and a great deal of braggadocio.
The 16th century Festival is home to many popular traditions including chomping down on a giant roasted turkey leg, and also features demonstrations of time honored crafts such as weaving, glass blowing, blacksmithing and pottery throwing.
Main Events at the upcoming festival
A most special event within this giant event is The Pleasure Feast. This is a one-and-a-half hour five course medieval feast with live music and comedy entertainment, fine food and ample drink, plus festival gifts and souvenirs. With limited seating twice daily, advance feast reservations are recommended.
The most unique experience at the Renaissance Festival is the interaction with actors on the street who make everyone a part of the VILLAGE AT PLAY.
Kids will love the interactive games and people-powered rides; Da Vinci’s Flying Machine, The Slider Joust, Piccolo Pony a rocking horse bigger than an elephant! There is also the Dragon Climbing Tower, Castle Siege, the Maze, Archery Range and much more!
Those washer wenches don’t just act silly on the stage, they make sure their audience members make fools of themselves too. The King is not just some guy in a crown; when you meet royalty at the Festival, it is hard not to bow with everyone else.
Maybe you will be asked to carry a secret message for the Lord Sheriff, or you may find yourself the object of a poet's admiration or scorn. Don’t shy away from these encounters...you’ll have so much more fun if you jump right in!
