Pirate Weekend At The Georgia Renaissance Festival!!

  • May 31, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come Celebrate The Georgia Renaissance Festival's 29th anniversary season with the Atlanta Pirates and Wenches Guild! We'll be puttin' on our finest threads and packin' our best gear to rub elbows with the Lords and Ladies, the Fairy Folk, the Gypsies, Belly Dancers and of course all the Buccaneers. New this year be a Parade of Pirates at noon in the Pirate Cove to be followed by Best Dressed Pirate Costume Contests at 1:00 in the Pirate Cove. Also new this year be a Walk the Plank Trivia Contest at 3:00 on the Garden Cottage Stage and a Sea Legs Relay Race at 4:00 in the Joust Arena (ye must sign up with a partner in advance at the Information Booth). In past years, Kroger and Publix have sold tickets to the Fair at a small discount which also lets ye get in the gates quicker but we have not heard if they be offering this again this year.

Festival hours are 10:30 to 6:00 and the parking is free.  Each year Pirate Weekend is extremely popular and crowded so make yer way early mateys (past years there have been a 2 hour wait to get into the parking lot at opening time).
