About the Dream
Between the realm of legends and myths lies the land of Fairy Tales. The world where Good and Evil is easily defined, Knights always conquer the Dragon, and Damsels never stay in distress.
That is not our World.
But it could be.
We strive to bring the Myths and Legends to life. To learn why men, who seem bigger than life, made the decisions they did and fought for the causes that defined them. We pray to the Gods of Old that we can learn from their mistakes while honoring their sacrifices in order to redefine our World. We strive to bring the Past to the Present and Fairy Tales back to Life.
At the Mississippi Renaissance Festival you have the opportunity to explore the Year of Our Lord 1306. A year where King Edward I, "the Hammer of the Scots", was leading the charge in subduing Scotland. You can choose to join King Edward I in retaliation for the uprising of the Scottish or choose to stand beside Robert The Bruce as he took a stand to defend his country. In a world of allegiances you could even unite with the Viking King Haakon V Magnusson in his promise to assist the people of Alba (Scotland). The choice is yours.
While standing and fighting for your House we offer the chance to travel through time and culture. We have three distinct Town Markets that offer your favorite Renaissance Faire food from feasts fit for Royalty to delectable desserts, live bands and singers, bellydancers, traveling troupes of Magicians and Acrobats, Romani Fortune Tellers, and multiple stages filled with Bards, Plays, and live Tournaments. Each Market features their own Pub with Drinks unique to them.
We offer Kid Friendly activities and shops, from a Dragon Quest to help your chosen House win the Battle that day to a Fairy Tale Tea Party with some of our favorite Princesses. We have a child friendly Tournament Field where your Warrior can spar with Knights of the Realm and a Grimm's Forest Adventure where they can meet the Fairy Tale Foes and live to tell the story.
While you are traveling through time and cultures you have the chance to encounter the wildest bunch of Pirate's known down Pirate Alley in our Tortuga Port. Join them for their stage performances, music, and pirated drinks.
History has never been so immersive, comprehensive, and exciting as here with us at the Mississippi Renaissance Festival. Together we will find that place between Legends and Myth and bring our Fairy Tales to Life.
