This year the Minnesota Renaissance Festival marks our 50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee Celebration. In 1971 the Minnesota Renaissance first appeared out of the summer mists to celebrate the spirit of the Renaissance. As has been their tradition, the King and Queen have proclaimed that the Master of the Revels gather the finest crafters and artisans, a cornucopia of food, challenging and adventurous games, music both pastoral and raucous, and stages full of acts of comedy and skill. And of course the most important ingredient in our Festival celebration, you! We’ve missed you! Our villagers and royalty are eager to welcome you through the gates and have you join us in celebrating our 50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee Festival day! Huzzah and cheers for 50 years!
