In the age of technology, living in the left lane, and life in the office, it is always fun to take a step back and revisit our childhood fantasies. A time of fairies, mermaids, knights in shining armor, and royalty was something we all envisioned as we put cooking pots on our heads or boasted a crown in a game of imagination play. Adults and children alike can discover what it feels like to watch these images come to life with Lake Norman fun and a visit to the Carolina Renaissance Festival during their StayLakeNorman getaway.

An Event For Everyone

Though many believe these fairytales are only for children, the Carolina Renaissance Festival proves to bring out the youth in all of us. Watch as mermaids swim through the water at the Circus Siren show and watch in awe as magic glimmers in the eyes of onlookers. There are feasts, pubs, and of course plenty of spots to grab a glass of delicious mead for adults while an array of performers create entertainment for patrons of all ages!

Take the kids to the games and rides section of the fest where they can discover the fun of non-motorized wooden rides and games like archery. The petting farm is also something that is fantastic for children and adults to learn about different animals, from horses to more exotic species like the lemur.

Finding The Best Entertainment

When it comes to the Renaissance Festival, there is no shortage of entertainment. Spend the day shopping around for handcrafted armor, art, accessories, magical potions and brews at many of the vendors throughout the festival. In between checking out all of the unique artisan market areas, there are numerous shows that you can catch. From comedy shows and traditional dance performances to jousting and sword battles, there is undoubtedly something to peak your interests. While some performers wander the grounds singing and interacting with guests, a few stages host special acts that you can pull up a seat and enjoy as you munch on a turkey leg and other treats that you found along the way.

A Full Day Of Fun And An Evening On The Lake

The Carolina Renaissance Festival is a full day affair that you will want to leave yourself plenty of time to explore. When the day comes to a close, head back to your StayLakeNorman lakefront rental for a bit of Lake Norman fun to wrap up your adventures. Relax on the water or sit around a calming fire by the shores. There is plenty of Lake Norman fun to discover during your time with us here at StayLakeNorman, so come and explore with us during the Carolina Renaissance Festival and find a little magic with us!
