A Renaissance Festival is a recreation of a Renaissance or Medieval village. They are filled with costumed actors, crafts and games to give patrons the illusion that they have stepped back in time. The SunCoast Renaissance Festival features 100’s of performances on many stages and in the lanes and over 50 craftspeople set inside of the Sarasota Farigrounds.
