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 firstname.lastname@example.org to speak to a park representative.
