This past weekend I was so excited to have the opportunity to visit the Arizona Renaissance Festival. US Family Guide Sponsored my families entry fee for this post. All opinions are my own, however.
I had never been to a Renaissance Festival before this and I am so glad that the Arizona Renaissance Festival was the first for me. We had such an amazing time, and we were all wiped out when we left.
Arizona Renaissance Festival
Fun For the Whole Family The Arizona Renaissance Festival is a medieval amusement park, a 13-stage theater, a 30-acre circus, arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament and a feast — all rolled into one non-stop, day-long family adventure! You will be in awe. Put on your good walking shoes and enjoy the day outside.
When you arrive you can rent Renaissance Clothing for the day right outside the gate. You can also rent wheelchairs, strollers, and wagons. We got a wagon since there was no way my littlest would walk all day long. We paid $15 for the wagon for all day use.
Things to Do
There is so much to see and do at the Renaissance Festival. The buildings are quite fun to look at as well. From free shows throughout the day to rides for the kids (that are not free).
Throw some axes, knives, stars, even shoot a crossbow! These cost around $3-5 each.
Free shows happen all over the park all day long.
Don’t forget a souvenir.
Of course, you can not attend a Renaissance Festival without catching the Jousting show! It was hilarious and so much fun to watch!

There were a few broken poles and some Knight’s talking smack to each other in their best Renaissance Voices. It was so funny.
