Such a blast! So perfect to take family. Amazing atmosphere. Cast will always go the extra mile for a great experience. filled with treasures and tasty things. Obviously can be a little pricey, but you can still have a good time on a modest budget. So much fun, we'll go every year. Be a fun person and dress up for extra great times, it's so amazing. (Also, the food stands all only take cash, so if you want to avoid a $3 fee, and a long line at the ATM: Bring lots of cash!)Also also: most of the shops won't take your debit if you're just buying anything under like $6( another reason to bring cash) Tip: unless you like crushed ice in jelly, I wouldn't bother with the berry smoothie. I found it way too sweet. Also the iced cappuccino was nothing special. I did however, enjoy the strawberry daiquiri, turkey legs are always really good too

We weren't expecting anything special but we actually had a really good time! It was fun and the people were friendly. I thought that the food options were very limited though. There are many stores to visit and lots of different events. You can also practice some archery or, if you have children with you, there is a cool area where they have living mermaids, they will take pictures with them etc. There is also a little farm and another area where you can take a ride on the elephant which I thought was pretty sad. I very much enjoyed the vintage book store. My husband and I were able to find some really good books. They also sell different tarot cards and astrology books. The parking is very organized; however, make sure you arrive early around 10 am so that they will park your car close to the entrance.

My first festival and it was so much fun. People were nice and friendly. Our jousting team won and we got a picture with him. Love it's in the middle of no where. Shows were great. Performances were detailed. We didn't even get to see everything and we were there from 12-6! Definitely will be going again.

We had a great Sunday at the Arizona Renaissance fair. I would recommend however that everybody purchase their tickets online prior to going to the event. Then you don't have to wait in the line. We think that the food and beverage were reasonably priced and everything we had was excellent from a turkey leg, two chicken on a stick, soup in a bread bowl, and chocolate dipped strawberries. The entertainment was excellent and fun, and the comedians certainly made us laugh.

The best festival in Arizona! Fun for all ages. This place is a medieval paradise. Jousting show was fun! Many different types of shows along the pathways. Many people were dressed up in Costumes employees and non-employees whole families dressed up. They also have daily costume rental on-site. Lots of market places to shop, and food vendors. Great food & drinks, turkey legs, bread bowls super yummy, stuffed potatoes, etc. Stuff to drink included Mead, beer, wine, mixed drinks & frozen, and non-alcoholic frozen lemonade was the bomb. Dine in theater show purchase tickets at Fry’s supermarket price includes entrance to festival and dinner show $75. P/p. Dinner is excellent! Or you can purchase festival only tickets $24.
