The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is back after it was cancelled due to COVID-19 last year.
The festival announced on Facebook Saturday that it will officially reopen Aug. 21 for the 50th annual event.
“We look forward to welcoming you for what is sure to be a MAGICAL season,” a post from the festival reads. “Our 50th anniversary will be the grandest Renaissance Festival in all the realm!”
The season will run on Saturday and Sundays through Oct. 3, as well as Labor Day and Festival Friday on Oct. 1.
Admissions tickets and season passes from the cancelled 2020 season will be honored this year.
The festival says it anticipates the event to go on “without restrictions,” though it encouraged guests to stay up to date on the latest COVID-19 protocols.
While the Minnesota Renaissance Festival was cancelled last year, it did opt to hold a number of drive-through events last fall in which festival goers could purchase signature food, flower crowns, wooded swords and other items.
