Celebrating the Spirit of the Renaissance!
20th Annual Oklahoma Renaissance Festival
Costumed performers and artisans present Renaissance Music, Magic, Comedy, Juggling, Jousting, Tomfoolery, Arts, Food, Drink, and more!
The Renaissance was a rebirth of the human spirit, igniting a passion for beauty expressed through poetry, art, music, intellect, and romance. This pivotal time cultivated
a desire for a noble life, for a freer opportunity for expression, and for the melding of
intellectual curiosity, diverse culture, and exotic commerce.
Experience a rich cultural tapestry, and the beauty and grandeur of Renaissance England, right here in Oklahoma! You’ll be transported back to the 16th Century as Castleton Village comes alive with over 600 costumed stage and street performers, merchants, and artisans providing an entertainment experience fit for Royalty. Enjoy special daytime events like the Queen’s Tea, the Royal Luncheon, and the King’s Smoker. And be sure to get tickets for the after-hours entertainment at the Masqued Ball, the Pirate’s Feaste, and the Ceilidh.
The Castle welcomes new performers for 2015! Chris Ivanovich will be performing up-close magic at the Crown Inn. The Maguire Brothers will be providing vocals on the Chessboard Stage and enjoy the celtic rock of Cleghorn the third weekend of Festival.
