Red Knight RenFestReady for some 16th-century fun at the nation’s largest Renaissance festival in the country? Tis the season for the 41st  Texas Renaissance Festival kicking off Saturday, October 10, for eight consecutive weekends. Good news is discount tickets are available for the festival.

Located about 50 miles northwest of Houston, Texas Renaissance Festival features the sites, sounds, and smells of a 16th-century village. With jousting matches, 200 daily performances, international cuisine, thousands of costumed characters, elephant/camel rides, human-powered rides and games of skill — there is truly something for everyone!

Discount tickets are available online and at Walgreens. Best of all, kids are free every Sunday!

Online prices are $26 for adults ($24 + $2 fee) and $14 for kids ($12 + $2 fee). Gate prices are $29 for adults and $14 for kids. Folks who plan to attend more than one day can benefit from a $39 Weekend Pass: admission one “any day” and one Sunday during the season, though it doesn’t have to be consecutive days. Purchase the discount tickets online here.
