2020 Renaissance Faires at a Glance
With so many festivals closing or rescheduling their dates due to safety concerns around COVID-19, here's a look at RenFaires that do hope to open their doors this year.
With numerous events rescheduling their dates through the end of the year due to safety issues around COVID19, there has been some concern that event dates that normally didn't overlap may now conflict. This chart, which shows 49 Renaissance Faire and Festival run-of-show dates for 2020 in the US, is designed to help patrons, merchants, and performers more easily see which events overlap so they can better schedule travel plans.
(NOTE: this list does not include pirate, fantasy, or viking festivals and only shows those events for which we have been able to confirm dates. If you're aware of a festival that has scheduled their 2020 dates and is NOT on this list—or an event on this list that now plans to close in 2020—email the info to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
To confirm dates, closures, and delays with festival staff—and report on the results—takes an extraordinary amount of time.
