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! Reservations are required and there is an additional cost, please visit their website for more details.
