30th Annual Georgia Renaissance Festival


Last weekend we made a trip to Georgia to attend the 30th Annual Georgia Renaissance Festival.  We’ve never gone to the festival before so the kids were very excited when we told them what we were doing.  We arrived just a few minutes after they opened and were surprised to see the amount of people that were at the festival.  The only traffic we ran into was the last two miles before the festival because traffic was backed up a little as everyone was trying to get in and park.  They had plenty of parking and attendants helping get the cars in as efficiently as possible.  It had rained the day before so it was a little muddy in a few places, but it wasn’t bad.

We had a great time watching all the neat shows and going through the various shops.  The kids thought it was fascinating and were even chosen to participate in one of the shows which was fun.  The people performing were very interactive with the audiences.  There were a few “adult humor” jokes in some of the performances, but nothing that the kids picked up on.  It was Roman and bring your pet weekend so there were lots of dogs which the girls loved.  We only saw one cat though!

They had a lot of different food options as well from giant turkey legs, key lime pie on a stick, funnel cakes, and more.  The kids thought the funnel cake was delicious!  There was alcohol available for purchase, however, with it being a day event most people were drinking casually so that wasn’t a problem.  They do allow smoking so occasionally you would have to walk around a group of people who were smoking usually around the picnic areas.  Overall it was a great experience, entertaining, fun, and a good family activity.

We got to see almost all the performances throughout the day.  Usually each show performs several times during the day so if you don’t catch one time you get another one.  We were there close to 6 hours and were able to watch at least part of every show that was performing that weekend.  It was neat to see a lot of tricks and talent.

Here are some of the pictures from the shows we attended and really enjoyed:

Birds of Prey show, this guy flew over our heads!


The owl is ready!


We had an empty seat next to us and one of the workers would call the birds so they would land right next to us.


He’s got his little helmet on to keep him calm during the performance.


Petting the animals


Wheel of Death act at the Marrakech Mews area


He was walking and doing the jump rope while this huge wheel was spinning way up in the air.  Amazing!


Barely Balanced was entertaining on the Halfwit Harbour Stage

Now that’s a way to stretch.
