Renaissance Festival
21st Annual Carolina Renaissance Festival  (near Charlotte, NC)
Sat & Sun, Nov. 1 - 2, 2014 (and every weekend through Nov. 23rd, 2014)
16445 Poplar Tent Road Crafts Program, Huntersville NC 28078.  Located just north of Charlotte between Concord and Huntersville on Highway 73 at Poplar Tent Road (between I-77 and I-85). Exit 25 on I-77 or exits 52 or 55 on I-85.  Saturdays and Sundays, 10am - 5:30pm.  The Carolina Renaissance Festival is an annual FAMILY FAVORITE - we love it! The Carolina Renaissance Festival is a 20-acre medieval amusement park, with 9 stages offering wonderful Renaissance-themed shows throughout the day, an amazing circus, an arts and crafts fair, and a jousting tournament and a feast, all a part of a full day-long family adventure!  Rain or shine.  No pets.  Free parking.  Kids under 5 free.

Editor's Note:  We look forward to the Carolina Renaissance Festival every year - it is one of our favorite annual family outings, and well worth the drive.  The fair is a renaissance village featuring physical buildings and structures that are permanent year-round, but used just for the Festival during Festival season.  (It's not an empty field, it's a reproduction medieval village with trees, grass, shady areas, buildings, stages, all enclosed, with an area encompassing 20 acres.) When arriving at the gates, visitors feel as though they are entering a medieval town; everyone is dressed in period clothing and acting various roles from knights to knaves, fairies to jugglers, ladies in waiting to falconers.  Watch knights on horseback jousting; see medieval jugglers and jokesters; experience a falconer show; enjoy minstrels and merriment; try your hand at archery; ride a camel; give the Jacob's Ladder a whirl; enjoy live music and comedy; greet the strange and fascinating walking tree; see the royal procession headed by the reigning King & Queen in full renaissance regalia . . There is so much to do it is impossible to summarize everything in a brief paragraph.  It's so much fun to dress up in period clothing (not required); our children love to wear their knight costumes and princess costumes!  Both children and adults love it.
