ARRINGTON, Tenn. (WTVF) — It’s opening weekend for the Tennessee Renaissance Festival.
After being canceled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the festival returns!
Take a journey back in time, to a 16th century English village. You can enjoy jousting, a pirate show, knighting ceremonies, marketplace, rides and food.
"It's like a walk back in time," said Mike Freeman, founder of Tennessee Renaissance Festival. "Instead of a burger and a hot dog, you get a turkey leg."
It’s on the grounds of Castle Gwynn in Arrington and has a little bit of everything for everyone.
There are some changes because the festival is during the pandemic. For instance, you’re encouraged to socially distance and you have to wear a mask.
A one-day pass ticket for adults is $25 and $10 for children.
You can visit the castle and enjoy the festivities every weekend during the month of May and Memorial Day. For more information click here.
