Texas Ren Fest

Oktoberfest | October 11 & 12 2014

Raise a tankard as we open the festival in true Oktoberfest style.  Journey to Bavaria and the Black Forest as the air echoes with traditional German music and dancing.  Dance a polka, feast on Bratwurst and sauerkraut, quench your thirst with a stein of beer and join in the fun by entering into one of the three German themed contests.  PROST!

Themed Adventures

At the Texas Renaissance Festival, the nation’s largest, most acclaimed Renaissance theme park, each of our 8 weekends showcase an exciting and unique theme.  These Adventures have been fashioned to spotlight those shows, characters, food, drink, shoppes, artists, and games that will enhance your festival experience.  Whether you are a long-time patron or a first time guest, each Adventure itinerary serves as a guide for exciting opportunities during your visit.  These suggestions can be followed closely or can serve as a springboard for your imagination.  To make the most of your Adventure, purchase our souvenir program which provides a full listing of our shoppes, and entertainment schedule and a detailed map of the festival site.  Enjoy your day at the Texas Renaissance Festival and be sure and return again and again to experience a new Adventure every weekend!
