Kansas City Renaissance Festival Sneak Peak!

Huzzah!! It is that time of year again! Fairies, Kings, Queens, wisps and everything in between can be found at one of my favorite places, the Kansas City Renaissance Festival! The biggest kickoff to the Fall season.  Bridgette, from the iFamily Mom Squad, was able to get a little first hand preview of what to expect at this years Ren Fest!  Take a look…

Kansas City Renaissance Festival Sneak Peak!

Growing up I have always wanted to take part in the Royal Court at the Ren Fest.  Being able to preview this year’s Ren Fest was a close second! Seeing everyone in their costumes, hearing the music, meeting the King and Queen, participating in the royal precession… it was so magical.  It brought back so many fond memories from my childhood. I even had my first pumpkin spice late of the season thanks to The Roasterie!

If you have never been to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, it is a long standing tradition for the KC area filled with a variety of live shows & tournaments, unique arts and crafts and of course amazing food and drinks!

This amazing festival begins September 2nd and runs through October 15th. The only sad thing about this festival is that it is only open on Saturday and Sundays, except for Labor Day and Columbus Day. You can check their website HERE for more details on hours and even the theme of each weekend. Take note: they have a knighting ceremony in the kids’ realm too!

This year, the Ren Fest is featuring new food and drink items.  New on the menu is pulled chicken, funnel cake fries and amazing Mexican street corn! Not to mention a killer spiked apple cider beer!

Make sure you get your tickets ASAP and head out to the Annual KC Renaissance Festival!

Here are a few photos of our experience from last week. Just know, these pictures do no justice of how awesome it really is!
