Arizona Renaissance Festival - Fool's Masquerade

Arizona Renaissance Festival - Fool's Masquerade
Sunday, Apr 2, 2023 from 10:00am to 6:00pm
Arizona Renaissance Festival
12601 East Highway 60

Experience our 50 Acre Cillage, 16 Stages, Arts and Crafts Fair, Jousting Tournaments and feasting all rolled into one non-stop, day long adventure!

Schedule of Events:

Our entertainment is varied and there is something for every age and taste. A number of the shows involve comedy improvisations with the opportunity for the occasional risque joke. Although this type of humor tends to go over the heads of young children (and some adults as well) you can look for the rating "LC" (Loose Cannon) on the event schedule for shows for which we recommend parental discretion.
