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 all to the Tennessee Renaissance Festival!

You are encouraged to physically distance and keep your children within your family unit for their safety. For children ages five and under, parental discretion is advised regarding mask use. However, some activites (including the Rides and Games, Face Painting, Hair Braiding, Castle Gwynn visits, or interactive stage contests) will require a mask to be worn by children to participate - please keep this in mind while planning your day be sure you have a mask for your children as necessary. Children ages 13 and over are admitted under adult admission and will be required to wear a mask or clear face shield. We suggest cloth masks that are made with layers of tightly woven, breathable fabric that fit well for your face.
