Georgia Renaissance Festival 2017 // USFG


Here we are again, back at the Georgia Renaissance Festival. We were invited back last year but there were some extended family issues that kept our traveling, especially out of state. to a minimum for part of the year. We were super excited to be heading up again though. The kids had a great time in 2015.
We picked a weekend and roadtripped up to Fairburn, Georgia. 
Ill let most of the pictures kind of talk for themselves but we like going up here to get out of the area for a little. Gives s a little mini vacation and we have a great time up there. The Renaissance Festival is always very authentic. It is all well maintained and clean. The vendors and entertainment are very interactive and friendly. They all have something different to offer and that just adds to the experience. 


This year the Festival is celebrating 32 years of taking you back into the 16th century. 32 years of transforming Fairburn into Newcastle.













The craftsman's and artisans are located throughout the fair. There were these super awesome sage warriors and over-sized incense sticks -Dragons Breath. Rod Scoville will show you how to shoot a bow and arrow while The Peachtree Handspinners Guild shows the process of spinning and dying wools and yarns. It is really amazing to see all of this in action.











When we were out here last year we weren't able to get through all the shows but we did run into the Walking Tree Man again this year. 


Cosplay and costumes are a pretty big part of the Renaissance Festival. From full 16th century England attire to a little more simple additions, like fairy wings and headdresses. You can always stop by Rapunzels Hair Braiding for a traditional festive hairdo. 




We ended up having a sick kid while we were here so we were not able to make the whole Festival. Before we left we did stop for The Tortuga Twins and The Wheel of Death. Both shows we did not see last time. 


















Then of course you have the food. Authentic to the times there are things like Jesters Fryed potatoes, meat pies, corn on the cob, fish and chips, scotch eggs, mac and cheese on a stick, Merlin's Magical Cinnamon Almonds, and of course turkey legs. 









We, as a family, are thankful to have been invited back and are thankful for the opportunity given to us from the coordinators of the Georgia Renaissance Festival.  

Have you ever been to a Renaissance Festival?
