Here’s your chance to see both The Celtic Croft and MacGregor Games at the same event. The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is one of the oldest and largest Renaissance themed fairs in the United States. The Celtic Croft will be there August 19th and 20th for the “Highland Fling” theme weekend. We at MacGregor Games will be in our permanent booth for the entire 7-weekend run of the festival.
The Minnesota Renaissance Festival began in September of 1971 on a 22 acre field in Jonathan, MN. More than 25,000 people visited the two weekend grand opening of the festival then named “A Celebration of Nature, Art, and Life!” That celebration has since relocated to Shakopee, MN and has grown to be the largest Renaissance Festival in the United States with an annual attendance of 275,000. The Minnesota Renaissance Festival includes more than 500 entertainers, 275 aertisans, and 120 food booths, all adding to the magic that entices visitors from across the nation.
