The Minnesota Renaissance Festival was cancelled for 2020, but you can still experience the Minnesota Renaissance Festival this year – from your car!
The Minnesota Renaissance Festival on Parade is a drive-through experience that will be weekends September 19th through October 4th, plus Friday, October 2nd.
This first-ever drive-through experience will feature over 30 Festival foods as well as entertainment, artisans and a goodie bag for all vehicles!
Like the Minnesota State Fair Food Drive-Thru event, there will be a limited number of tickets sold. All will need to be purchased online and for specific dates and arrival times.
Each vehicle is $20 (this includes sales tax). Be sure to purchase your ticket early for best choice of date and time.
This is a 2.5 mile, one-way leisurely route through the festival grounds. Plan a few hours for this visit.
With your ticket you get:
- a Minnesota Renaissance Festival on Parade goodie bag (sponsored by Red Bull) filled with surprises from sponsors and partners
- a drive with tasty treats, free fun, games, and activities including in vehicle games like Trivia, Festival Find it and a Carriage Costume Contest along the way!
- access to foods along the way include Turkey Legs, Unicorn Cake, Cheese Curds, Apple Dumplings, French Fries and much more. Food purchases are not included in the vehicle ticket price though so budget accordingly. (Food service will be conducted at vehicle windows following health and safety protocols.)
You can order tickets and find more info on the Minnesota Renaissance Festival website.
