Final weekend for the Georgia Renaissance Festival in Fairburn

June 7 & 8 – Closing Weekend and School’s Out Celebration!

The Georgia Renaissance Festival closes this weekend and is offering a special School’s Out Ticket Offer.

All student tickets jsut $5 at the festival gate. Students 18 and over must show student ID at the Gate. This discount is available ONLY at the Festival Gate and cannot be combined with any other offer.

Here is a description of this year's Georgia Renaissance Festival from AJC writer Bo Emerson:

The fairy folk, mud wrestlers, jousting knights and kilted visitors munching massive turkey legs return to Fairburn on April 19 for the 29th Georgia Renaissance Festival, a south Fulton tradition every spring and fall. This year’s fair will bring the familiar, including the bawdy Ded Bob Sho, and some new entertainments.

New to the festival is a trio of blue-painted Circes called Sirena, described by festival spokesman Dave Dorrell as “a combination of Enya and Stomp.” Expect ethereal harmonies and vigorous percussion. Birds of Prey, a nonprofit out of Pine Mountain, presents performing raptors, including hawks, eagles, owls and vultures, flying directly over the heads of the audience members. The festival adopts a different theme for each of the nine weekends from April to June.

The ever-popular Pirates Plunder weekend is May 31-June 1, and galleons of scurvy knaves and wenches will show up dressed like they raided Davy Jones’ locker.

10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays April 19 through June 8, rain or shine, and Memorial Day, May 26. $22, $20 seniors, $10 children 6-12, children 5 and under free. 6905 Virlyn B. Smith Road, Fairburn.
