Pirate Festival & Renaissance Faire

Pirate, Renaissance, Fair, Festival, Music, Entertainment, Live, Willard Bay, Utah

History and Fantasy unite every year in May at the Utah Renaissance Festival and Fantasy Faire in Marriott-Slaterville only 30 minutes from north Salt Lake City.

Here time stands still as myth and legend collide in a fanciful display of the Renaissance period interspersed with eccentric and whimsical elements of a time that never truly was.

As you step through the gates into Hawkhurst Village, Fairies float by on gossamer wings, Gypsies belly dance to the beat of a rhythmic drum, Pirates fiercely guard their treasures, Mermaids splash playfully in their own pool of water, Magicians perform amazing illusions, and in the distance you can see the Knights of Honor preparing for their jousting tournament that is to be presided over by the Royal Court and King Henry VIII. You’ll also have the chance to wander through the Guild Encampment where you can visit with the Romans and Azure Rose.
