Get ready to raise your glasses and celebrate Medieval times at the 2024 Renaissance Festival.

Quiet Waters Park plays host to its annual journey into the heart of the 16th century, with the 32nd Annual Florida Renaissance Festival held through March 24. 

Open every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until sunset, the longstanding, enchanting festival invites attendees to experience the charm of the Renaissance era. 

This year’s festival features 100 artisan booths showcasing unique crafts, goods, and entertainment by over 100 performers, including sword fighters, minstrels, and magicians, spread across 12 stages and the entire village of Kimmendale.

As is custom, attendees can also look forward to live jousts, a plethora of royalty-caliber feasting options that include fine foods and desserts, and plenty of opportunities to raise a Medevil toast at one of the grounds pubs.

Numerous rides and attractions, like the Knight’s Flight Zipline, axe throwing, archery, tests of strength, and the new Blue Moon Pirate Kayaks, are available as entertainment options. 

Season passes are again available, starting at $160 for adults and $70 for children this year.

Season Pass holders enjoy several benefits, including a 10% discount on purchases over $25 at the souvenir shop, an invitation to the exclusive RESCU Rally after-hours event, and discounted VIP parking. 

New perks for 2024 include express lanes at the entrance and pubs for faster access, VIP seating at the Joust, a special gift exclusively for pass holders, and an automatic entry into sweepstakes with an exciting prize.

Open from 10 a.m. to sunset at Quiet Waters Park at 401 S. Powerline Road in Deerfield Beach.
