The Kansas City Renaissance Festival is a theme
park sized fair in Bonner Springs, Kansas, with lots of food, shopping
and fun entertainment. 2015 is the 39th year of the festival. Each weekend
has its own theme starting with Wonders of the World and concluding
Pirates Ale Fest.
The Kansas City Renaissance Festival has a cast of 150
costumed performers, supplemented by hundreds of costumed vendors, stage
performers, and park guests who choose to wear garb and fill the 16 acre
fair with the colors and sound. Cheer while knights in armor duel on horseback
to win the Queen's favor. Enjoy shows on 13 stages. Let your children try
rides and games while you shop for crafts, jewelry, art and costumes in
over 160 booths. The food isn't as exciting as it was when the festival
was a benefit for the Art Institute of Kansas City (Missouri), but still
compares favorably with the Kansas City area's other major attractions.
The apple dumpling with ice cream and the turkey legs are among my favorites.
In 2015, the Kansas City Renaissance Festival will run
on Saturdays & Sundays from Saptember 4 until October 18. The Renaissance
Festival is also open on Labor Day and Columbus Day.
Allow a bare minimum of 3 hours to visit the Kansas City
Renaissance Festival. Many visitors will spend most of the day. At any
given time there may be a dozen or more performances taking place at venues
scattered throughout the Renaissance Festival grounds. One stage hosts
nothing but back to back magic shows.
Take 1-70 to K-7 (the Bonner Springs exit 224). Turn North
for a few blocks, and banners & signs will lead you to the Festival
Gates. The parking is free, and driving out from Kansas City, Missouri,
there is no charge for that stretch of the Kansas Turnpike.
