The Florida Renaissance Festival Celebrates 28 Years

All Lords and Ladies are cordially invited to step back in time during seven weekends of adventure at the annual Florida Renaissance Festival. New themed weekends, new entertainment acts and more await those who look fondly upon years (ahem, centuries) past. All are invited to the grandiose event taking place February 8th through March 22nd, at Deerfield Beach’s Quiet Waters Park. Special theme weekends encourage patrons to be their favorite knight, wizard, viking and more!

For the fifth year in a row, the timeless Florida Renaissance Festival will offer SEVEN jam-packed themed weekends to ring in its 28th season. This year, the celebration kicks off with a return to the English Monarchy and Henry VIII! Prepare for a greeting by jesters, jugglers, and jousting knights upon entering the gates, while sweet melodies can be heard from every corner of the kingdom. It’s a full day of entertainment where the entire family can marvel at fan favorite acts and performances that include immersive and interactive, real audience-participation scenarios. Join in on the fun with human powered rides, artisan craft shops and enough food & drink for a royal family feast!

One of the nation’s most beloved events, more than 100,000 annual attendees and more than two million people having participated over the festival’s tenure, the Florida Renaissance Festival has devoted 28 years to capturing the essence of the Renaissance through entertainment and living history.
