Inside our turreted gates, visitors enjoy the sights and sounds of a 17-acre village, complete with building reproductions of Renaissance shops, taverns and a magnificent castle. Continuous entertainment takes place on the streets and on 17 themed stages; featuring full-contact armored jousting, comedy and theater shows, music, games, people-powered rides and so much more! Fabulous food and more than 300 artisans displaying their gallery-quality works complete the experience!

about the festival

For years, the Michigan Renaissance Festival has provided Holly with a unique venue that regularly attracts more than 250,000 visitors from Michigan, surrounding states and Canada. When the Festival first began back in 1979 on the grounds of Columbiere in Clarkston, Michigan, the Renaissance Festival attracted 11,000 patrons during its 5 weekend event. Years later the Festival found a more permanent home where it currently stands, just 12 miles south of Flint on Dixie Highway. The duration of the Festival has also extended to 7 weekends, plus Labor Day Monday and Festival Friday.

THE 2016 FESTIVAL SEASON IS OPEN FROM 10AM - 7PM, AUGUST 20TH - OCTOBER 2ND.
WE ARE OPEN LABOR DAY & FESTIVAL FRIDAY, SEPT. 30TH.
