You are at Minnesota Renaissance Festival village and festival day. Queen Katherine has lost her sense of humor; London life, with its stuffy politics, rigid rules of decorum, and meaningless court intrigue, has sapped her of her happiness. King Henry has tasked the Master of the Revels with organizing a Festival day to cheer her up. That Festival day is today! The Queen is traveling to this Village to take a break from the grim and worrying world and to indulge in the straightforward joys of music and dancing, delectable food, and the simple fellowship of the regular folk she adores.
Painting, astronomy, sculpture, chemistry, performance art, and physics were among the arts and sciences that experienced a resurgence during the Renaissance. In contrast to science and religion, the magical arts also saw a renaissance. Wizards, magicians, alchemists, and enchanters created experiences and happenings that appeared to contradict their knowledge and beliefs. The Wizard's Cote, a tiny cottage where you may find Renaissance Festival's wizards and magicians in residence during the day, is where Renaissance Festival honors this long-standing tradition. Visit Minnesota Renaissance Festival to see the prestidigitation of Brother Paul, Fez the Fantastic, Vincenzo, and Paul Cook as they astonish and confound you.
Mary Tudor, who ruled England as its first female king from 1553 to 1558, was succeeded by her half-sister Queen Elizabeth I, who ruled for 45 years throughout the Elizabethan and Shakespearean eras. Mary earned the nickname Bloody Mary because as queen, she ordered the execution of roughly 300 people for heresy. Renaissance Festival honors this infamous monarch by hosting a Sunday morning bingo tournament featuring the Bloody Mary, her go-to drink! All bingo winners received prizes. A wonderful way to begin your Festival day with Mary Tudor at this renaissance festival village. The festival day is one of the favorite things of the people who know where to find interesting places.
