Des Moines Renaissance Faire

"Experience the “Age of Enlightenment” at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire. Enter our gates and you will go back in time to an era when royalty ruled, knights jousted, and the arts came alive! The excitement begins Labor Day weekend and extends through the next two weekends in September.

Browse through more than 50 specialty shops. Attend the spectacle of the coronation at the Royal Court. Shout the battle cry of your favorite knight at the jousting arena. Partake in demonstrations by glass blowers, blacksmiths, potters, wood carvers, and painters. With unique costumes, our people bring the Middle ages back to life, and offer plenty of excitement to attract people of all ages! Bring a purse full of coin, for our merchants offer the finest in jewelry, weaponry, leather goods, candles, clothing, children’s items, chocolates, pottery and more.

Come Hungry! The irresistible aromas of the various vendors’ baked goods, smoked meats, stir fry, roasted nuts and caramel corn will delight even the pickiest eater.

    Gates open at 10:00 and if you get there about 9:30 or so many of the "actors" are gathered outside the gate for pre faire show. Plan on staying for the daily closing show at the main gate at 6:00. Be sure to catch the jousting. Come in a period costume for even more fun.
