The Village of Fairhaven is open once more for the 29th Annual Carolina Renaissance Festival featuring jousting knights, falconry, mermaids, fairies and more. Festival-goers can don their best Renaissance duds to travel back in time and take in immersive entertainment across 14 stages.
The timeless festival boasts an artisan marketplace with over 140 vendors, including glassblowers, blacksmiths and cobblers.
It runs every Saturday and Sunday through Nov. 20, beginning at 9:30 a.m. and concluding at 5:30 p.m. Be sure to arrive early for the pre-opening Gate Show at 9:10 am. Tickets to the family-friendly experience are available here.
