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:

As you are aware, we were unfortunately unable to open our gates this year due to the current COVID-19 pandemic - the health and safety of our Patrons and Renaissance Family is PARAMOUNT.

Yet even if you can't gather with us in person, you can still have remembrances of the year that wasn't: we're proud to announce the opening of the Castle Gwynn Gift Shop!

We have all the usual (and a few unusual!) souvenir items, ready to ship to you (free shipping for purchases over $100!). It's the perfect collection of items to wear, sip from, or just have nearby as you're browsing through Faire Relief 2020 or watching The Digital RenFaire at home.

We wish our Patrons and everyone in our Renaissance Family a safe year, and look forward to seeing you all in May, 2021.
