Kansas City Renaissance Festival

About Us

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival, a Kansas City fall tradition for over three decades, celebrates 40 years of huzzah and cheers!  Just north of I-70 and K-7 highways. 

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival is like walking through the gates of time to another age where guests from around the metro, the Midwest, the country and sometimes the world get a taste of 16th century life.  Almost 200,000 fans come to be a part of history whether learning how a blacksmith creates tools from iron, chatting about art and philosophy with Leonardo Da Vinci, practicing with the Queen’s lacers and seamstresses, shooting arrows with the infamous Black Archers, training with the Royal Guard or fighting barbarians in the Wildewood. Crowds are awed by performers on twenty stages of non-stop entertainment, including jousting by the knights of Joust Revolution four times a day. Entertainment runs continually through the shire with a wide variety of music, comedy, magic and choreographed combat.

Tickets can be purchased at the Festival gates just north of I-70 and K-7 highways in Bonner Springs, Kansas on show days at $25.00 for adults, $30.00 at the door, $10.95 for kids. Weekend specials listed at or call 913-721-2110 for group ticket prices and information on parties and weddings at the Festival.
