The Maryland Renaissance Festival is underway, and runs through the October 23.

Called RennFest, it is a good time for people of all ages!

RennFest is located right outside of Annapolis in Crownsville, and is open on Saturdays and Sundays.

There are vendors with food, clothes, goods, and more, plus performances galore!

Performances take place on one of 11 stages or theatres, with numerous shows throughout each day. There are even Medieval jousting tournaments in the jousting arena! One stage has mostly children’s shows, so the fun is there for everyone.

Wandering performers, musical, dancing, etc happen throughout the Village all day as well.

Tickets are $19 for ages 16 & up, and $9 for children ages 7-15, while admission for kids 6 & under is free. Seniors aged 62+ tickets are $14.

Their website is chock-full of details — times, location, performances, and more so you can plan your trip.

It has been a few years since I have been, and am thinking I want to bring my son back this year because I think he would really enjoy it. The jousting, the costumes, the performances — what could a five year old not love about the fest?

I hope you go and enjoy — and maybe I will see you there!
