Immerse Your Students In the Royal Faire!

The Carolina Renaissance Festival is a cornucopia of sights, sounds and experiences, bringing to life the ambiance of an early European village celebration.  The Festival will open on three special weekdays to accommodate students and teachers who wish to enjoy a very distinctive field trip opportunity.  Costumed characters delight audiences with staged presentations, village artisans provide craft demonstrations and living history troops, such as The Queen's Court, bring the 16th Century to life. 12 stages are scheduled with music, dance and comedy acts every half hour.  Craft demonstrations are on-going throughout the day.  A major Festival feature is the re-creation of jousting tournaments with knights in armor performing on horseback in the King's Tournament Arena.  Our Student Days Program was created to highlight the educational aspects of the Festival and to give school groups a chance to join the fun!!!
