About this event

  • 9 hours 30 minutes
  • Mobile eTicket

Whether it's your first time or you're a seasoned veteran of Renaissance Faires, this will be your favorite Renaissance weekend yet! A few of the biggest problems when attending RenFest include safe transportation, staying hydrated, and assembling a group of friends. Let us handle all that!

This is our biggest year yet and we'd like to welcome our very special partners:

  • Monk's Mead - the official mead of the GA Renaissance Festival
  • Shezmu Cellars - Best of Georgia Wineries winner in 2020 & 2021
  • Georgia Beekeeper's Association - protecting Georgia's pollinators

Imagine meeting at a local meadery and enjoying a few drinks of mead, beer or wine while getting to know some like-minded people, all of whom are in costume just like you. After a bit, you grab a seat on a bus and continue pre-gaming for the 45 minute ride to the Renaissance Festival. Once you arrive at the festival, you are shown to a secluded clearing where there's places to store your belongings and convenient bathrooms for you and the group. After you're settled, a trumpet blows and a crier announces that lunch is served... there's turkey legs! After you've grabbed a bite to eat, a knight informs you that the soft drink station will be available all day so feel free to return as much as you like, but now we need to prepare for the Pirate Pub Crawl. "Oh yeah," you say, "I almost forgot I signed up for that!" With that, 30 of the most fun-loving people in the group make their way to the first of three pubs and private live performances, all with drinks included! After the pub crawl, you're feeling great and take a stroll around the festival grounds. At the end of the day, you board the bus (dang, that A/C feels good!) for a ride back to the meadery to begin the after party. "That's it," you think to yourself, "this is now the only acceptable way to do RenFest!"

Sound good? Grab your ticket while you can because we sell out each year! Be sure to add on the Pub Crawl because it goes the fastest. Get all the details below... there's lots of info here, so please read it all!

*** TICKET RATES INCREASE MARCH 20th SO DON'T WAIT! *** Split your ticket cost into four equal, interest-free payments by selecting the 4 payment option for payment method during checkout!

  • Your best costume! It's officially Highlands Weekend (think Scottish/Irish), but any pirate, renaissance, cosplay or Halloween costume will do! Of course, costumes are optional, but if you're going to do it right... we recommend a costume!

HERE'S THE SPECIAL EVENTS THAT DAY:

It's OPENING DAY! The festival has just gotten started and the village of Newcastle welcomes you!

Costume Contest - 1:30pm at the Jousting Arena. Think you have the best costume in the village? Put it on display for all to see and maybe you'll win a prize!

Shezmu Cellars Winery & Taproom is an urban winery producing local honey-wines (mead) while also pouring 30 taps of craft beer and over 25 wines from North Georgia wine country. Shezmu Cellars believes mead doesn’t have to be a sweet dessert wine and focuses on producing sessionable dry meads served carbonated, nitrogenated, and still. Voted Best Winery in Georgia in 2020 and 2021 by the Georgia Business Journal, the Marietta winery is available as a venue for private events and hosts monthly art exhibits and comedy shows among the occasional themed party.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What if it rains?

--- The show goes on rain or shine! We are hardcore like that. Honestly, your hosts go to Renaissance Faires all the time and some of the best days are the ones where it's pouring rain. The casual people go home and the real fun people are all huddled under awnings having the time of their lives!

Do I need to print my tickets?

--- No! We will be able to check you in electronically. And we will have paper tickets for you for admission to the RenFest

Is parking available?

--- Yes, there is plenty of free parking in the lot in front of the winery. There is also tons of free parking at the festival grounds if you chose to meet us there with the adventurer ticket.

Do I have to be 21?

--- No! But attendees must be 18 years of age or older and there is no discount on admission. Also, you'll be wristbanded as under-age during the morning meet and greet and bus ride. Don't worry though, we can remove the wristband once we are at the festival, we would never ruin your costume pics :)

Can I bring the kids who are under 18?

--- No... that's kind of the point.

Are there bathrooms on the bus?

--- YES, huzzah!

What is the refund policy?

--- Due to the very large fixed costs in advance of this event, we only offer refunds at least 30 days prior to the event. If you can't make it and it's too close for a refund, please contact us and we may be able to pair you with someone on our waiting list or issue you a credit for future events.
