Huzzah!  The Kansas City Renaissance Festival, a Kansas City Fall tradition, runs weekends through October 16th plus Columbus Day, rain or shine in beautiful Bonner Springs, Kansas. Fall festivals continue with Camp Leavenworth & the Overland Park Fall Festival ranking at the top of our list this weekend!

John and Terri jumped out of their car, walked around to the trunk, and started dressing in their Renfest costumes. They were well prepared for this weekend’s Shamrocks and Shenanigans special event at the Renfest. John was pumped for the Irish dancing and the dance contest that would follow. 

‘Too much fun ahead”, Terri exclaimed, while John was busy strapping on his sword over his long shirt and pants. As soon as they dressed in costume, they each grabbed a sack of 5 cans of food for the food drive. ‘It’s awesome to support the community”, John said, “the idea of delivering 5 cans of food in place of the $5 admission fee is genius.”

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival began its journey in September of 1977 as a benefit for the Kansas City Art Institute. Since then, the Kansas City Renaissance Festival has grown to be one of the largest Renaissance Festivals in the United States, with an annual attendance of 200,000.

Mid-America Festivals is the nation’s largest producer of outdoor themed events. In 2016, we entertained nearly one million people in a wide variety of locations across the country.

Mid-America Festivals currently devotes its time towards developing some of the best festivals in the country. Mid-America Festivals, along with affiliated entities, owns and operates the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, the Trail of Terror (located in Minnesota), the Bay Area Renaissance Festival at MOSI (located on the grounds of the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa Bay, Florida), the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, the Michigan Renaissance Festival, the St. Louis Renaissance Festival and many other events. The company demonstrates its event production and promotion leadership by embracing all aspects of event production, from specialty merchandise and corporate sponsorship to ticket sales and multi-media marketing.

Based in Minneapolis, Mid-America’s staff is comprised of talented managers experienced in all aspects of entertainment. Mid-America Festivals began producing Renaissance Festivals in 1976 as a natural extension of its president’s career in major venue promotion and production. The company’s background ranges from rock and roll events, featuring artists like the Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, and Prince, to event management for concerts like Rock the Garden in Minneapolis.

Terri enjoyed the caramel apples while John enjoyed the handmade cinnamon rolls, they both loved the fried turkey legs! Interesting food, wonderous and unusual entertainment, and the fun of dressing in costume to enjoy a day of make believe always brought them back to Renfest!

Theme weekends up ahead….10/1-2 Heroes and Villains, 10/8-10 Barkbarian Brewfest, and 10/15-16 Haunted Huzzah!
