This is a shopper’s paradise with over 200 elaborately adorned shops offering an array of goods.  Find unique hand made items such as blown glass,  premium leather goods, and jewelry.  The best part, watch artisans work as they create a masterpiece right before your eyes!

A visit to the Arizona Renaissance festival would not be complete without seeing the Tournament Jousting. Cheer on your Knight in the 5,000 seat arena of champions. Quite a spectacle, as two tons of horse, knight and armor gallop onto the field, prepared to do battle with ten-foot lances for a lady’s honor. When the joust is over, stop at the Royal Stables and meet your champion and his steed. These tournaments are held three times a day at Noon, 2:30 and 5:00 pm.

Be treated like Royalty! One of the most exclusive events at the festival is the wildly raucous Pleasure Feast! Enjoy 1 1/2 hours of royal entertainment and a 5 course pleasure feast while the boisterous serving wenches and tavern knaves dish up a roaring good time! There are only two feasts daily at Noon and 2:30 pm, so don’t miss out!  2017 Pleasure Feast Menu – View it here.
