Last Weekend to Enjoy Renaissance Festival

This is the last weekend to enjoy the Tennessee Renaissance Festival.

At the Renaissance Festival, the Village of Covington Glen comes alive with the bustle of a Renaissance Marketplace. Over 60 skilled artisans from all over the country display their wares from silks to swords; from gems to jewels. Flavors, aromas and tastes of specialty foods and drinks greet the festival-goer. Hear the sounds of Renaissance musicians and merrymakers as they echo through the trees. Color, movement, and peals of laughter welcome those who thrill to the challenges of games of skill and man-powered rides.

The final weekend of the Renaissance Festival is May 23. 24 and 25 (Memorial Day) and it’s Celtic Weekend. Enjoy fun games and contests as the Fair honors the early Britons. Men, wear your kilts!

There’s something for the whole family from a Children’s Knighting Ceremony, traditional music, costume contests and jousting! See a list of all the entertainment here.

The festival is open 10a-6pm each day and parking is free.


Off Highway 96 between the towns of Franklin and Murfreesboro, the Tennessee Renaissance Festival is easily accessible from I-24, I-65, and I-840, just 25 miles south of Nashville. The festival address is 2124 New Castle Road, Arrington, TN, 37014.
