CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Renaissance Festival is back this fall!
The 28th year will kick off on Oct. 2 and will be on the weekends through Nov. 21.
The 20-acre village in Huntersville will have shopping, feasting and non-stop entertainment.
This Festival is a full day of entertainment and pageantry as history comes alive with hundreds of costumed characters re-creating a 16th Century European Marketplace. It's a 25-acre outdoor, open-air village nestled in the forest and meadows, complete with castles, cottages, kitchens and pubs, filled with activities. You'll find music, comedy and theater, food and drink, fine hand-made arts and crafts, artisan demonstrations, games and rides.
