Unique entertainment awaits your family at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire. You can see dozens of different performances of music, comedy, swordplay and more during your visit.

Stroll through our village marketplace and browse the wares of dozens of traveling merchants and artisans. It is one of the most unique “art/craft” shows around.

Relax in the shade under our covered pavilion and enjoy fun foods and drinks, including libations.

There will also be various hands-on activities for children (and adults). From kid’s crafts to axe throwing, there’s usually something you won’t find anywhere else except a Renaissance festival. See our portrait gallery for images from past events.
