Renaissance Fest Back for Another May

The Tennessee Renaissance Festival is back. Every May the village of Covington Glen, nestled in the Medieval hills betwixt Murfreesboro and Franklin, hosts the event, drawing fairies, pirates, knights and ladies from near and far.

The festival opens from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday in May, plus Memorial Day.
