Welcome to the Tennessee Renaissance Festival !
Travel back to 16th Century England. Our Village of Covington Glen comes alive with the bustle of a Renaissance Marketplace. Over 60 skilled Artisans from all over the country display their wares from silks to swords; from gems to jewels. Flavors, aromas and tastes of specialty foods and drinks greet the festival-goer. Hear the sounds of Renaissance musicians and merrymakers as they echo through the trees. Color, movement, and peals of laughter welcome those who thrill to the challenges of Games of Skill and Man-Powered Rides. Come join us at the Tennessee Renaissance Festival!
To our Renaissance Family and Friends:
The Health and Well Being of Everyone must take precedence in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC, state, and local agency measures and guidelines have led us to make this most difficult and disappointing decision. The 2020 35th annual Tennessee Renaissance Festival is cancelled for this year - we cannot open.
The health and safety of our patrons and Renaissance Family is PARAMOUNT.
We thank everyone for your past support, and your understanding with this difficult decision.
If you'd like a little taste of the festival from the safety of your home, we encourage you to take a look at The Digital RenFaire and also Faire Relief 2020.
