Georgia Renaissance Festival Jousts Atlanta Into Spring
For eight weekends every spring, The Georgia Renaissance Festival brings a 16th-century European country fair to the Atlanta area. With nearly 1,000 characters wearing period costumes, the renaissance festival offers visitors a variety of activities from jousting tournaments to glass-blowing demonstrations to sword-swallowing shows.
Performers at The Georgia Renaissance Festival include acrobats, jugglers, magicians, dancers and wandering minstrels.
In addition to live entertainment, the renaissance festival in Atlanta features games, rides and children's activities, among them a haunted ship and a rock climbing wall. A 32-acre Artisans Market at the renaissance festival hosts a number of arts and crafts demonstrations, including weaving, spinning and coin minting. Pubs and shops sell turkey legs and other goodies.
The Southeast Tourism Society recognizes The Georgia Renaissance Festival as one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeastern United States. The renaissance festival in Atlanta is available for birthday parties, weddings and other private events.
