Annual Renaissance Festival Outing


If you are from North Carolina, chances are you have been to the Carolina Renaissance Festival. The festival begins in early October  and runs through late November.The event continues, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. until dark. Parking is free and discounted tickets are also available at Harris Teeter. The festival covers 325 acres of woodlands, just above Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Renaissance Festival is fun for children and adults, of all ages, as it provides 16th century European style art and entertainment. Attractions at the festival include an outdoor theater, circus entertainment, crafts marketplace, arts, jousting tournaments and much more. Throughout the festival you will find over 100 vendors that are selling crafts and food. Music and comedy shows are also presented on 11 different stages throughout the event. Over 500, fully dressed characters also walk around the village. They sing, perform tricks and tell stories. The Renaissance Festival has something for everyone to enjoy!

For the second year in a row, Better Car People and our sister company Big Ring Interactive decided to attend the festival. We saw the Renaissance Festival as a great opportunity for company bonding and team building. Employees were invited to bring family and friends to the event. Dressing up was encouraged!

Laughs were had and turkey legs were devoured! It was a great time had by all! The Better Car People staff is looking forward to next year’s festival!
