We had the opportunity to visit the Carolina Renaissance Festival for the first time last weekend and we had an amazing time! In the suburbs of Charlotte, you can be transported back in time to a place where history comes alive.
A big thanks to the Carolina Renaissance Festival for hosting us for this fun, family event. We received complimentary tickets for admission but all of my opinions are honest and my own.
CAROLINA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL ENTERTAINMENT
We watched a show with a dancing PIG!! We were lucky enough to snag front row seats to watch Snorkel, along with Rick and Jan, for their sole performance of the day. Let me tell you, Snorkel the pig has some awesome stunts up his sleeve– he was wearing clothes, so I think it’s safe to say “sleeve”. The humor during the show was definitely PG-13 but the jokes went WAY over the heads of our preteens!
Have you ever seen a ToryStellar?? We saw Zilch the ToryStellar and his way with words was ridiculously awesome. Again, the humor was PG-13, but the jokes were completely missed by our under 13 crowd. They were rolling in their seats at his rendition of “Rindercella and the Stwo Tugly Epsisters”!
CAROLINA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL FOOD
The food at the Renaissance Festival was delicious and surprisingly affordable. We’re used to paying Disney prices for food and we were pleasantly surprised. The turkey leg was $9 but had a TON of cooked to perfection, tender meat.
