Step back in time by staying at our hotel for the Carolina Renaissance Festival. See history in action, through interactive shows, thrilling games, and all sorts of medieval fun and festivities! Throughout October and November, this spot in Concord transforms into Fairhaven, the grounds of one of the country’s largest Renaissance festivals.
The festival is a great place for special events. Check out the Renaissance Festival’s website to learn more about special events and family rates.
The North Carolina Renaissance Fair’s most memorable feature is all the live-action shows and comedy. Three times a day, noble knights clash in a horseback joust. The ancient art of falconry is on display at the festival, with a variety of birds of prey performing tricks overhead. In addition to the iconic falconry and jousting, there are twelve action-packed stages with performances of all kind.
And the fun isn’t just on stage: the festival has over 500 costumed villagers wandering about to help and provide entertainment throughout Fairhaven.
The fair showcases over a hundred vendors selling unique, handmade souvenirs. Pick up something memorable, handcrafted using ancient arts like glass blowing, blacksmithing, pottery, candle making, leather working, and sculpting. The festival runs until mid-November, so it’s the perfect place to buy a one of a kind gift as a holiday present for someone special.
Head from our hotel to the Carolina Renaissance Fair hungry for fun and food!
