GIVEAWAY: Georgia Renaissance Festival

By Autism, Diva, and Dance. May 25, 2017

The 32nd Annual Georgia Renaissance Festival is a family-friendly event, and a different kind of theme park. The Georgia Renaissance Festival brings a 16th-century European country fair to the Atlanta area. With nearly 1,000 characters wearing period costumes, the renaissance festival offers visitors a variety of activities from jousting tournaments to glass-blowing demonstrations to sword-swallowing shows.

Sandy Springs Dunwoody Macaroni Kid is being given complimentary entry to Georgia Renaissance Festival but no monetary compensation has been made.  As always, all opinions and thoughts are my own. 

The Georgia Renaissance Festival is a family favorite of ours and we’ve been going since DIVA started school.  Long before I started writing.  You can read some of my thoughts and tips at 10 Tips For Visiting GA Renaissance Festival

The Georgia festival is the largest Renaissance festival in the Southeast. Over 150 artisans display and demonstrate their wares in our Artisan Market, and we present a continuous schedule of music, comedy, juggling, and amazing feats of skill on 10 stages every festival day. There is truly something for adults and children of all ages to enjoy ‚Äď all day long!

One of the highlights of any festival day is the Jousting Tournament. Visitors can experience the clashing of steel and the thundering of hooves daily with three full combat jousts at the Royal Tournament Arena.

The Southeast Tourism Society recognizes The Georgia Renaissance Festival as one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeastern United States. The renaissance festival in Atlanta is available for birthday parties, weddings, and other private events.
