The Georgia Renaissance Festival

Step inside the gates of Newcastle and find yourself transported back to 16th-century England! Our 32-acre village is filled with over 150 artisan craft shoppes, 10 stages of endless entertainment, wonderful pubs and taverns, plus food galore! You'll laugh out loud at the antics of our costumed characters, try your skill at carnival games, and enjoy human-powered rides for kids of all ages. Did we mention food? Giant roasted turkey legs, fish and chips, hearty ales, mead and more - a feast fit for Royalty! It's a full day of fun, food and entertainment for the whole family.
