Join 200,000 Other North Carolinians At This Year’s Gigantic Renaissance Festival

Many people don’t realize one of the largest renaissance festivals in the country takes place each year in the Tar Heel State. For eight enchanted weekends this fall, the Carolina Renaissance Festival will delight visitors with a world of medieval charm. Spanning 25 acres, the festival comes to life with charming castles, pubs, cottages, and many other must-see attractions that make a day at the festival much like spending a day in Camelot.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Tickets to the Carolina Renaissance Festival are available online or at regional Harris Teeter stores. The prices are $25/adults, $15/children ages 5-12, kids under 5 are always free. Special prices are available to seniors and military as well. Prefer to wait and purchase tickets when you arrive? You can do that, too. Major credit cards are accepted at the festival box office, and many vendors inside also accept them; however, some do not – so bring some cash.
