Welcome everyone to merry old England! Step back in time, amidst the pageantry of the day, and explore our kingdom full of musicians, artisans, eateries, and knights. Test your skills as you attempt to walk across the rope bridge or hit the catapult target with a water balloon. Feast like a King on hearty food and drink. Shop and barter for fine handcrafted treasures in the bazaar, listen to the sounds of performers entertaining the villagers.

The Illinois Renaissance Festival is honored to announce their partnership with the Midwest Veterans Association. This partnership will allow us to assist in raising both awareness and financial support for the ongoing increase of homeless Veterans in 34 counties. Because we are both (501.c.3)nonprofit organizations, your donation is tax deductible.


Join us for a day of fun for the whole family!
