Carolina Renaissance Festival

Saturdays and Sundays from October 3rd – November 22nd; North of Charlotte, North Carolina

Nothing says “autumn” quite like a stroll through an authentic medieval village in the rolling hills of North Carolina. Known as one of the country’s largest renaissance festivals, the Carolina Festival holds a special “Halloween Daze and Spooky Knights” celebration over the holiday weekend. Children and adults will find free treats all around the village as they run into over 300 costumed characters. Tip: don’t miss out on the Knights of the Living Dead zombie-themed jousting competition!
