Festival Friday at the Michigan Renaissance Festival

Festival Friday has been an annual tradition at the Festival for over thirty years. The Festival is committed to making this day a valuable educational experience and an enjoyable time for learning! Students of all ages have a chance to do more than study history in a book; Festival Friday gives them a chance to live it!

This year, Festival Friday, will be held on September 14th with special pricing for school groups and homeschoolers.  Some of what you can expect includes:

The pageantry of a 16th Century village awaits! From peasants to royalty, the villagers of Hollygrove provide guests with a day to remember! The realm is filled with amazingly talented artisans, musicians and actors. Visitors are advised to bring their appetites and sample our fresh baked goods, soup in a bread

bowl, Scotch eggs, apple dumplings, our famous turkey legs and more!
