Renaissance faires and festivals make perfect day away adventures for kids of all ages. The atmosphere, punctuated by entertainment and living history moments, creates a carefree experience difficult to duplicate on your own. The best Renaissance festivals and Ren faires offer families weekend time-travel from the 21st century.

“Educators agree, children learn best by seeing and doing. Renaissance festivals and Ren faires provide parents and grandparents affordable, interactive, educational entertainment resulting in a better understanding of history and culture,” according to Nancy Nelson-Duac, Curator of the Good Stuff at http://www.theFamilyTravelFiles.com, and a patron of more than a dozen faires spanning two decades. She goes on to say, “Renaissance festivals provide a sense of being there making immersion in history fun and easy.”

The best summertime faires and festivals include Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, New York Renaissance Faire, Holly Michigan Renaissance Festival, and Minnesota Renaissance Festival.

Renaissance faires and festivals are held all year long, some span consecutive weekends while others focus on an annual weekend of fun. The best part of the experience is imagining together about another time and a place when royalty reigned supreme, bards, jesters, and fairy folk mingled with gallant knights, beautiful princesses, and an occasion dastardly dragon. To make planning a weekend time-travel experience, a new folder dubbed "Ren Faires" has been created at the files and populated with additional seasonal locations including the Renaissance festivals, Medieval faires, and Celtic fests.
