To Our Amazing Patrons & Participants,
We are profoundly disappointed to announce that the 2020 Kansas City Renaissance Festival will not be taking place this year. We understand the impact of this decision on so many wonderful artisans, performers, participants, volunteers, and countless families seeking a place to celebrate and enjoy a touch of normalcy that our yearly festival tradition brings. We worked hard the last five months to develop a plan and mitigation measures which we firmly believe would have resulted in a safe and healthy Renaissance Festival. However, it is clear that the current State directives will not change significantly in time to allow the Festival to open this fall. Although we disagree with the current directives that prevent a spacious outdoor venue from opening, we appreciate the open and cooperative spirit of our discussions and recognize the difficulty of the governmental task. We share their goal of keeping Kansans safe and healthy. We will continue to have events that can be produced within the current directives. We will be announcing new and exciting activities in the days and weeks ahead. We promise that you will not have to wait long for your turkey leg!

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival will return in 2021 and we will be celebrating our 44th Anniversary and promise that it will be the grandest Renaissance Festival in all the realm.

2021 will be here before we know it and 2020 tickets will be honored in 2021.

● 2021 Season: September 4th – October 17th; Weekends, Labor Day and Discovery Day October 11, 2021

We’re extremely grateful and wish to express our thanks to our Artisans, Cast, Corporate Partners, Sponsors, Staff, Vendors, Volunteers, Wyandotte County and Valued Patrons and appreciate your support and commitment to the continuation of this great Kansas City family tradition. We sincerely appreciate our Renaissance Festival Family and look forward to seeing you all again in 2021.

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by COVID-19 and we are here to help answer any questions you may have.

Additional information will be available on our webpage in the coming weeks with links to questions and answers, exciting news about 2021 and most importantly the highly requested information on how to support our incredible artisans.

We can’t wait to celebrate!
Well Wishes,
Jim Peterson & Team
