It was suggested to me that I that I should write a little every week about the attendance numbers from the weekend and maybe compare them to the previous year as well as provide a little information about weather conditions or other factors that affect attendance.

About the Texas Renaissance Festival


Every fall since 1974 the TRF has authentically recreated a 16th century English village on a 55-acre site in a beautiful East Texas pine forest. Here over 300 shops line tree shaded lanes where you are also likely to meet Lords and Ladies, jugglers, heroes, artisans, showmen, or even King Henry VIII himself! Venture to the Tournament Field and witness knights jousting for the honour of fair maidens, or chariots careening around the Tournament Field Lake. Around every corner you’ll find continuous entertainment on over twenty stages, unique games and rides, and bountiful food and drink from around the world! All is not 16th century, however, as the festival boasts free parking, eleven fully modern and attended privies (also known as bathrooms), and all of your favourite imported and domestically brewed beverages!

The festival is open this year Saturdays Sundays and Thanksgiving Friday from September 30th to November 26th 2017 – 9 a.m. ’till 8 p.m., rain or shine.
