TNRF Tickets, Passes & Purchasing Options

We are just five weeks away from the start of the 37th Annual Tennessee Renaissance Festival (TNRF), and ticket sales begin on Monday, April 3, 2023.

During our first year of running TNRF, we listened to patrons and took copious notes on ways to enhance the entire festival experience. Among the upgrades implemented for this year are a variety of options for buying tickets online and on-site.

Acquiring tickets online through our website is quick and easy and will actually cost less than buying tickets on-site. Website purchases also provide access to special festival passes and exclusive events, which only offer online registration. Reservations for these popular programs are limited and are first-come, first-serve.

This year, TNRF is excited to add a new pass option! We are pleased to be partnering with the Irish Penny Brigade (IBP) in offering renaissance festival enthusiasts’ access to an Ambassador Pass. This limited quantity pass is valid for every festival day in 2023 and includes special parking, an exclusive tent provided by IPB with private portlets, a commemorative pin, and some exclusive offers from participating vendors.

Buying tickets at the gate this year will also be more accessible and efficient. In addition to doubling the number of ticket booth and admission lines, patrons will now have access to dedicated credit card kiosks, separate from cash purchasing lines, to reduce the wait time to enter the festival.

For a complete list of ticket, pass and special event purchasing options, visit our Buy Tickets Page. Whether you buy your passes to TNRF online or get tickets at the gate, we’re confident the process will be faster and easier than before. We appreciate your feedback and helping us make the festival more comfortable and enjoyable for everyone.
