Ren Fest Unveils Theme Weekends

The Texas Renaissance Festival rolled out it’s highly anticipated themed weekend schedule today and will celebrate its 45th anniversary season with a weekend celebrating the Festival’s roots. The new theme, titled “Return to the Renaissance”, is a nod to the days when every weekend at the Festival was set in 16th century England during the reign of King Henry VIII. In order to make room for the new theme in the event’s nine-weekend calendar, the Roman Bacchanal themed weekend has been put on hiatus for 2019. The new theme will feature a host group representing the courts of England, France, and Spain as well as a Renaissance themed costume contest and other theme related events.
The entire 2019 Texas Renaissance Festival themed weekend lineup includes:
• Oktoberfest- Oct. 5 & 6
• 1001 Dreams- Oct. 12 & 13
• Pirate Adventure- Oct. 19 & 20
• All Hallows Eve- Oct. 26 & 27
• Return to the Renaissance- Nov. 2 & 3
• Heroes & Villains- Nov. 9 & 10
• Barbarian Invasion- Nov. 16 & 17
• Highland Fling- Nov. 23 & 24
• Celtic Christmas- Nov. 29 — Dec. 1
The festival will be releasing more information regarding ticket sales and other news in the coming months. Complete information can be found on the website-
