The Georgia Renaissance Festival
I took my daughter and her friends to this Georgia Renaissance Festival this year and we had a ball! It just so happened to be her 15th birthday and she is very into things like this so it was a perfect fit.
It was a beautiful summer day to be outside. The one thing that I truly enjoyed about the festival this year were all the African influence that I found. The festival is based on a sort of medieval time period so we expected jousting, knights, queens, etc. But this had a “village outside the castle” feel. In other words it was diverse, it was happy, it was full of busy villagers. Common folk, if you will.
We heard beautiful African Inspired story telling. Here a woman shares the story of Anansi The Spider.
There was African Inspired drums as you can see here in my Instagram post.
There were games for the kids and enormous turkey legs and all types of crazy good food.
Not to mention the beautiful attention that the vendors paid to every detail. Everything was gorgeous and scenic
This is what made it such a wonderful experience. I totally felt like I was lost in time in a super friendly village with lots of smiling faces, things to do and great food. We will definitely be back!
The 32nd Annual Georgia Renaissance Festival is a family-friendly event, and a different kind of theme park. Inside this 32-acre recreation of a 16th Century English Village you’ll find hundreds of costumed characters including the Queen and her Court, endless circus-style entertainment on 10 stages, shopping in over 130 artisan shoppes, food fit for Royalty, games and rides for kids of all ages, and the spectacular Jousting Knights on horseback. Patrons are invited to wear costumes and join in the fun too. It’s a whole lotta’ fun, and a little bit of History, every weekend and Memorial Day, April 15 thru June 4, 2017.
