Texas Renaissance Festival anyone?!

I can't tell you how often I've heard people I know talking about this amazing thing called the Texas Renaissance Festival. It happens once a year. People of all ages, races and backgrounds are attracted to it. Be it for the booze, the festivities, or the chance to go back to the renaissance age - there is something for everyone. 
I've been wanting to go for the past few years. So much so, that I even added it to my bucket list. Thanks to my association with US Family Guide, I may just get to finally go this year! 
If you like to have unique family fun, I suggest you take a look at what they have to offer. 
The Texas Renaissance Festival is the nation's largest and most acclaimed Renaissance themed event. Established in 1974, the event attracts over half a million visitors each year to its 55-acre New Market Village and Fields of New Market Campgrounds in Todd Mission, Texas. This immersive experience features world renowned live entertainment, works by master artists and craftspeople, award winning food and drink, hand-powered rides and games, and over 100 interactive characters during its nine themed weekends from September 30 through November 26, 2017. For more information, please visit www.texrenfest.com.

Each weekend, a different theme comes to life across the 55-acre festival grounds including:

Oktoberfest (September 30 & October 1)
1001 Dreams (October 7 & 8)
Pirate Adventure (October 14 & 15)
Roman Bacchanal (October 21 & 22)

  1. Wow! That is a good list of what they will be doing through the end of the year. Can't wait to see your reviews. When are you going?

    1. We haven't decided which weekend yet. Andrew was thinking the Roman weekend sounded most appealing. I'm super excited for any of them.
