The Texas Renaissance Festival invites all public, private,and home school educators and students to join us for the 12th Annual School Days, when our faire is open only to teachers and students! Students step back in time as they enter the sights and sounds of New Market Village, an authentic recreation of a 16th century European village. Students will interact with hundreds of costumed characters representing the courts, culture, art, science, and literature of the Renaissance Period.

Jousting knights, musicians, jesters, and magicians perform on stages and arenas throughout the village. Students will have the opportunity to learn courtly dances, the ancient art of falconry, and the history of arms and armor. Artisans in period dress illustrate the technological advances of the Renaissance age through live demonstrations in pottery, glass blowing, blacksmithing, armor making, and other arts and trades of this amazing period.

Hours: 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Tickets: $9

Optional Lunch Vouchers: $10
