The Tennessee Renaissance Festival opens May 8

Travel back in time to Covington Glen, a 16th century English village. Magic, comedy and music await with the thrill of a royal jousting, action-packed pirate show, Knight Wings birds of prey demonstration, heroic Robin Hood and sassy wit by Axel the Sot at the Renaissance 2021 festival.

The Renaissance Festival opens Saturday May 8 and takes place every weekend in May as well as Memorial Day!
