About Renaissance Festival
Immerse yourself into the sounds, smells and sights of an authentic 16th century village as you celebrate Renaissance Festival’s 45th season this year in Shakopee. With more than 300 street characters roaming the village, you could come face-to-face with the town beggar, the common peasant, the royal court and even the King and Queen. Marvel at 16 stages of live entertainment, over 250 artisan booths for endless shopping, live armored jousting and food fit for a king! Open weekends, August 19 – October 1, 2017, Labor Day and a special day for schools and seniors on Festival Friday, September 29, 2017.
