The Orlando Renaissance Festival is located in beautiful Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake and while the park allows dogs, the festival does not for the safety of the animals featured within the festival grounds. That being said, we are exploring the possibility of having a dog friendly day here in the next few years! Keep an eye on our Facebook page, because we will definitely announce it if our pet policy changes!
Service animals are permitted, though it's a good idea to double check with the park in case there are any special rules. Call 407-246-4486 or email email@example.com to speak to a park representative.
Are there any hotels nearby?
We are located minutes from Universal Orlando Resort, and so our patrons have easy access to some awesome hotels in southwest Orlando. We are working with nearby hotels to negotiate discounts for festival patrons, so stay tuned for more information on discounts and group rates! A few hotels in the area include:
The extremely talented Chelsea Smith designed the poster for our 2018 & 2019 season! She's been a vendor in our Marketplace since our first year, so be sure to visit her booth while you're at the festival!
What Types of Costumes are not allowed at the festival?
Please stay away from any garb that may be considered offensive. A few examples of offensive garb are a Nazi military uniform, blackface, or Native American ceremonial attire (as blatant cultural appropriation). Please also do not wear garb which could accidentally reveal your genitalia. Exercise your best judgement there. Please also peace tie your "weapons" and do not under any circumstances bring a working gun or a sharpened blade without a sheath.
