Since 1974, there's been a magical kingdom just at the edge of the Greater Houston area, where guests can step through the gates and enter an enchanted world filled with kings and queens, knights and nobles, fairies and elves, pirates and peasants, and other fanciful delights.
The Texas Renaissance Festival is the Nation’s largest, most acclaimed Renaissance theme park. Open to the public every Saturday, Sunday, and Thanksgiving Friday, October 3rdh through November 29th, and to students for School Days, Tuesday and Wednesday, November 4th and 5th.
The enchanted 55-acre village comes to life as all of Europe comes to pay homage to the King and Queen with Nine Themed Weekends. Hundreds of costumed performers are showcased in over 200 daily performances. Visitors meander along shaded cobblestone walkways visiting almost 400 shoppes overflowing with unique arts and crafts of offering delicious foods
and beverages. All ages will be amused by the games of skill and human-powered rides. Revel in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and beauty of this authentically recreated 16th Century British village with lush landscaped grounds and vines. A perfect day ends as behold the burst of Royal Fireworks held above the Festival’s lake.
It is also home to Brigadoon Brewery and Brew School and, to our knowledge, is a one of a kind 16th Century fully functioning brewery where you can watch and learn how beer was made during the renaissance time period.
Brigadoon Brewery & Brew School is a unique brewpub and teaching facility located on the grounds of the Texas Renaissance Festival in Plantersville, Texas. Brigadoon Brewery and Brew School was born from a desire to bring our love of brewing beer and our love of the Texas Renaissance Festival together.
Every Saturday and Sunday we offer a Taste of Texas Class. During the class our Brewmaster will lead you through 8 different samples of Texas Craft Beer.
Beginning in 2013 Brigadoon Brewery has tapped a wooden cask on stage at noon to officially kick of the seasons festivities.
