36th Annual TN Ren Fest

The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department (WCPR) is currently hosting the 36th Annual Tennessee Renaissance Festival. The TN Ren Fest started May 7 and runs through May 30, 2022.

Enjoy a colorful trip back in time to 16th Century England where the Village of Covington Glen comes alive with the bustle of a Renaissance Marketplace. Artisans from all over the country display their wares from silks to swords; from gems to jewels. Flavors, aromas and tastes of specialty foods and drinks greet festival-goers as the voices of renaissance musicians and merrymakers echo through the trees.

Jousting at the 36th annual TN Ren Fest

The Tennessee Renaissance Festival is fun for the whole family. Enjoy the revelry and pageantry of the joust, music, juggling, knife throwing, fairies and ogres, along with tea and a special visit with Her Majesty, the Queen.

Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday in May (7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29) and on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30. Daily General Admission Tickets are $25 per adult; $10 for children ages 6- 12; and children ages 5 and younger are admitted for free.

Festival founder Mike Freeman

First Year for Williamson County to Host TN Ren Fest

Festival founders, the Freeman family, approached county officials with an opportunity to purchase the renaissance festival grounds; located off I-840 at the eastern edge of Williamson County, in an effort to preserve the land as park property. As negotiations with county representatives progressed, the Freeman’s proposed gifting the festival rights to the county as well, to guarantee the event’s longevity. WCPR has named the festival grounds Castle Park and will continue the Freeman family’s tradition, hosting the Tennessee Renaissance Festival every May; as well as adding other programs, events and rental opportunities at the park in the near future.
