Renaissance Festival in Kansas City

By | October 12, 2012

The Renaissance Festival will continue its successful run through Oct. 14, with doors open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. The festival, which sees almost 200,000 visitors enter its gates each season, replicates a sixteenth-century village full of magic, entertainment, and wonder. Most of the shows and displays are interactive. You can learn to do an ancient dance, sing along with a group, or assist a stage magician who performs funny, and amazing, tricks. There is plenty for kids to do, as the Renaissance Festival has become much more family-friendly over the last ten years. Blair Stover strives to inform you about the latest happenings in KC.

The Enchanted Children’s Realm is one of many kid-friendly venues within the festival’s confines. Kids can sit for hours and listen to some of the best storytellers spin tales of fright and humor, most with a European Renaissance flavor that involves kings, queens, princes, and commoners. Adults are not left in the lurch at the event, since there are literally dozens of fun games, plenty to eat and drink, and even a few PG-rated shows. Blair Stover’s blog keeps you up to date on what is going on in Kansas City.


The event opened on the first day of Sept. The phone number, if you want more information about shows, childcare, parking, or tickets, is 800-373-0357. The venue is located at 628 N. 126th St. in Bonner Springs, Kansas. Admission is $19.95 for adults and $10.95 for children. For decades, the Renaissance Festival has entertained local area residents with its mixture of food, fun, and history. While most major metropolitan areas of the nation play host to some version of a Renaissance-style festival, this incarnation has been around longer than most, and is larger than some of the other touring shows that service the east and west coasts of the U.S. Follow the Blair Stover site for everything fun in Kansas City.
