Travel to Medieval Times at the Montana Renaissance Festival!

Wouldn’t it be fun to travel back in time? A time where you could count on a knight to save the day and when chivalry ruled the land. Where Lords and Ladies dressed in elegant Renaissance clothing filled with exquisite detail. Don’t let these things remain in the past. At the Montana Renaissance Festival and Highland Games, you can spend a whole weekend living during Renaissance times.  If you will be staying at one of the hotels around Billings Montana then come see what life during the Renaissance was all about!


The Montana Renaissance Festival is THE biggest Renaissance fair in the area, so don’t miss out! You will see the past brought to life right before your eyes. Guests will be dressed in various costumes that symbolize Renaissance times. Along with creative costumes, feel free to get in the spirit and take on a new character, whether it be a Knight, a fairy, a jester, or a wizard!  In addition to the clothing and atmosphere of the Renaissance, there will also be authentic jousting tournaments. Knights will be fully dressed in armour and compete for their Ladies’ honor.


Now, on to the food and entertainment. Throughout the faire, you will encounter storytellers, singers, dancers, villagers, and musicians. There will be belly dancers as well as Renaissance and Irish dancers. Some musicians performing include EarthShine, Trillian Green, and Dream Weaver, a Medieval folk rock band. After you enjoy some entertainment, head over to the food area. Feast on delicious food like turkey legs, steak on a stake, royal Scottish eggs, and more! Everything about the food and entertainment will make you feel as though you were actually alive during that time!


The Montana Renaissance Festival is perfect for the whole family! There will even be a children’s knighting ceremony on Saturday and Sunday. For more information and to purchase tickets, please click here.
