22nd Annual Oklahoma Renaissance Festival

22nd Annual Oklahoma Renaissance Festival

The Annual Oklahoma Renaissance Festival is back and this year the Castle of Muskogee is stepping in to 1569 Elizabethan England to celebrate with the Royal Court of Castleton.  This is your chance to spend your days with Knights as His and Her Majesty host a festival featuring the royal quest for knighthood, a full-contact Jousting Tournament, Birds of Prey exhibitions, as well as travelling Acrobats! This festival embodies the science and arts of the times so ‘tis of no surprise that Queen Elizabeth has invited nobles, merchants, pirates and most importantly, you, to celebrate!

The Castle welcomes new performers for 2017. The Unpronounceable Irish Band will be setting the tune of the Maypole dance on Somer’s Field. Guests may look forward to a new addition on the Castle’s Cave stage, the Dublin Harpers, a family of duel harpists who put an exciting spin on the melodious harmony for all to love. To the ladies of Castleton, the castle introduces the Duelists, a merry manly duo who tell jokes over swordplay from our Harbor Stage. In addition to the newest performers, fan favorites will appear on 1 of the 14 stages on the Castle grounds.

Real Faires spell it with an E is a joke amongst the Renaissance Faire community. However, for good reason, the Castle of Muskogee is proud of the experience provided to guests. For example, foodies may enjoy a diversity of worldly delights. Options span from a fire roasted turkey leg to finer delights such as pan seared quail strips. New this year, Fools Cap is now offering gluten free selections in addition to their delectable vegetarian menu items. Pair any of these options during an entertaining visit to 1 of the 9 pubs throughout Castleton. The friendly wenches are happy to tell stories over sodas, frothy brews, and chilled water and juices. The local winery hosts the social hotspot of Castleton. Guests (21+) may enjoy samples of varietal blends and meads while overlooking the Joust and Birds of Prey show.

You'll find a dazzling array of artisan creations with over 140 Renaissance merchant shops. OKRF is proud to include new merchants in Castleton! Inside the Keepe lies Roark Acres Honey Farms, where patrons can shop from a diverse selection of homemade products made from local honey, while also enjoying a demonstration of wax dipping and carving. For the young in age (or heart) is the Steel Key Carver in the Italian Quarter. This artist features hand carved wooden flutes masked as Wearable Mustaches. These flutes are fun to play, beautiful to hear, and so unique – who knows how great a gift this can be!
