Calling all lads and lassies! We'll be meeting up for a day of fun in the Renaissance life at one of the best Renn Fests in the country. Children are welcome. Please note that dependent upon the group size we have, we may break into smaller groups throughout the day. You won't be forced to attend plays, etc. that you aren't interested in. I will be staying to the very end to see Hack and Slash's beer extravaganza, but you are welcome to leave whenever, and do not have to stay as a group.

The Maryland Renaissance Festival is a recreation of a 16th-century English village. Our village is named Revel Grove, and is set on a beautiful 25-acre wooded site with 85 acres of free parking. The village consists of craft and food booths, five pubs, eight major stages, a Jousting Arena and lots of games. Every day is a Festival Day in Revel Grove, in honor of a visit by Henry VIII and his Royal Court. As such, the village will have entertainment, crafts, food, and frivolity fit for a king!

The gates open at 10:00 am, but we will be meeting in front of the main gates at 11am. If you are going to be late, or are stuck in traffic just text us and you can meet up with us in the park. Please remember to bring cash, some of the venders do not take credit.

Once inside the gates, you may want to check your program for a listing of all the shows, but part of the fun of our Renaissance Festival is taking your time to stroll through the lanes and let the experience unfold before you. Pause for a moment to listen to a musician. Watch a demonstration of glass blowing. Quench your thirst with a mug of ale and whet your appetite with a gigantic turkey leg. Pick up the latest gossip from the fishmonger. Thrill to the combat joust and then browse through the wares at one of the many fine craft booths. There's too much to do in a single day! Performers from across the North America entertain on the Festival's many stages while the streets and woods are filled with characters to amuse and delight. See a fire-eater, watch authentic jousting in full armor, listen to music and choral groups, thrill at jugglers, magicians, and comely wenches. Our streets and stages are filled with nonstop entertainment for all ages. Shops, displaying the finest crafts and works of art, invite you to see their wares. Stained glass, sculptures, original jewelry, pottery, wood-butchery, leather-work, inlay, clothing, glass-blowing, original prints, and soft sculpture are but some of the artistry displayed.
