Welcome to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival!
The Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival and Artisan's Marketplace returns us to the age of wonder, adventure and song, where pleasure reigns and merrymaking is the rule. For our 2014 season, we take you on a magical tour through time and legend. As you wander down the village streets and pathways of the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival, ready thyself to revel with master revelers, watch artisans create original works of their ancient craft and be taken in by the tantalizing aromas of roast turkey legges, steak on a stake, fresh baked goods and much more.
There are many reasons to return to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival again and again as no two Festival days are ever alike, for we offer wondrous themes for each of our festive weekends.
Featuring a cast of hundreds of authentically costumed merrymakers living and working throughout the village and performing, continuously, upon the Festival's stages, the illusion of a rollicking 16th Century festival day is created. Impromptu encounters with the royalty and peasantry of Tudor England are commonplace.
You'll meet all kinds, from jousters to jugglers to minstrels to maidens faire, all schooled in art of interactive theater! Much new entertainment has been summoned by Good King Henry for this glorious season. For six special summer weekends enjoy family fun for children and magical times for adults.
This event features over 200 shops with unique and handmade wares including art in various media, jewelry, clothing and costumes, weapons, pottery, shoes. Live demonstrations throughout the Realm include our Blacksmith, Raku Pottery, Glassblowing, leather and wood working. The festival is an ideal place to shop for unique and quality items. Each weekend, a different guest artist is featured.
You are welcome to come dressed in costume and costumes are available for rental. Costumes swords and daggers are permitted as long as they are properly sheathed and peace-tied. Present yourself to Safety Services Personnel at the Festival Main Gate.
