Renaissance Festival

The Maryland Renaissance Festival , which opened August 23rd and is open every weekend through October 19th is located in Anne Arundel County at 1821 Crownsville Road, just outside of Annapolis. This is the 37th season for the Maryland Renaissance Fair, which offers a unique outdoor experience of food, entertainment, skills and demonstrations, all in a day’s trip back to the 1520’s court of King Henry VIII’s.

Step Back in Time at the Maryland Renaissance Festival

As you enter the Maryland Renaissance Festival, you are transported back in time to the fictional village of Revel Grove.
