Just like I have a weird desire to go to the San Diego Comic Con one year (yet I have never read a comic book in my life), one of the items on our family’s bucket list has been to go to a Renaissance Festival. I think it would be fascinating to see recreations of how people might have lived during the medieval periods, as it has always been one of my personal favorite time periods. However, as we try and raise three boys, I think they would show a great interest in the many recreations of the time period.
As luck would have it, the Ohio Renaissance Festival is coming up September 5 through October 25, 2015. The event takes place Saturdays and Sundays, and also Labor Day Monday.
Since the Ohio Renaissance Festival is located near Mason, Ohio, it makes for an excellent road trip to not only see the festival, but also take in Kings Island’s Haunt event. This is where having a Cedar Fair season pass makes a ton of sense for families!
Over 150 costumed characters welcome you to the village! Rub elbows with Royalty as you cheer your favorite knight to victory in the thrilling Full-armored Tournament Joust. Welcoming you to a festive day in the village are dueling swordsmen, rowdy pirates, nobles, peasants, and daring jugglers. The sprawling landscape is dotted with hundreds of unique shops in the Medieval Marketplace featuring many one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted items. See time-honored crafts of glassblowing, stone carving, blacksmithing, leather tooling, boot making, and more demonstrated. The air is filled with the scents and smells of the foods of the Renaissance period. Feast like Royalty on juicy, giant roasted turkey legs, fresh baked bread bowls overflowing with soups and stews, fish ‘n chips, steak-on-a-stake, succulent roasted corn on the cob and a wide variety of the finest ales and wines. There’s something for everyone’s taste buds!
