One Of The Largest Renaissance Festivals In The U.S. Takes Place Each Year In This Tiny Town In Arizona

The Medieval era was arguably one of the most fascinating periods in history. Castles, jousting, and beautiful, over-the-top clothing left a distinct legacy that conjures daydreams of what it must have been like to experience it firsthand. Fortunately, there’s an opportunity for Arizonans to do just that! The Arizona Renaissance Festival brings the Medieval Age to life in an incredibly realistic way, promising an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
